The Strategic Intelligence System (ASIS) is based on advanced analytical models that forecast manufacturing activity in the durable manufacturing sector. The Machinery industrial production category includes products used in agriculture, construction, mining, industrial machinery, HVAC, power transmission, engines, and turbines.
The ASIS analytical models for the Machinery sector consider the complex interplay among 15 economic indices and hundreds of variables. The ASIS team’s analysis of 20 years of data and market shifts have enabled us to develop forecasting models with exceptional accuracy.
The monthly ASIS Machinery manufacturing section includes:
- 15-month forecast on US industrial production for the Machinery manufacturing sector
- A rolling 5-year graphic comparison of machinery manufacturing
- Twenty-year industrial production trend (including trendline) for the Machinery manufacturing sector
- Additional insights and intelligence on trends, pricing (where available in the producer price index), and other industry-shaping factors (politics, global economic trends, etc.)
The Machinery manufacturing sector spans many significant sectors in the US economy. Our economic team looks at agricultural output and pricing trends, construction, mining, utilities and energy production (including oil and gas), and large durable goods product trends. The team also looks at related sectors in industrial production that influence the direction of this sector including automotive, aerospace, fabricated metals, and primary metals activity. Each relies on one another for both supply and demand.
The Machinery manufacturing section of the ASIS is just one part of the full report. Since many sectors within industrial production rely on one another for component parts, a single subscription gives members visibility into all 7 major categories of durables manufacturing. It also includes forecasts and insights into the national supply chain situation since it is often a critical component of operating costs, hence operating margins.
ASIS members include manufacturers; Tier 1, 2, and 3 suppliers; raw material producers, financial managers and many others. Executive managers across C-suite corporate management, finance and strategy, operations, credit and risk management, sales and marketing, and HR managers use the insights they gain from the ASIS to make critical business decision.
