Revved up: Increased spending on transportation will drive demand for industry products

The Engine and Turbine Manufacturing industry is dependent on trade, especially demand from exports, which account for nearly half of industry revenue. Although revenue recovered slightly early on in the five-year period, volatility in key downstream markets led overall revenue to trend downward over the five years to 2017. Over the five years to 2022, greater overall truck transportation in the United States will drive domestic diesel engine sales. Increased consumer spending will spur demand for freight and on-highway transportation. As one of the industry's largest customers, increased freight trucking leads to more sales of diesel engines. As industry revenue grows, manufacturing operators will be able to invest in industrial equipment and machinery...read more.
