October U.S. Cutting Tool Consumption Down 6.9% Year-To-Date

October U.S. cutting tool consumption totaled $169 million according to the U.S. Cutting Tool Institute (USCTI) and the Association For Manufacturing Technology (AMT). This total, as reported by companies participating in the Cutting Tool Market Report (CTMR) collaboration, was down 1.6 percent from September’s $171.7 million and 4.7 percent when compared with the total of $177.4 million reported for October 2015. With a year-to-date total of $1.7 billion, 2016 is down 6.9 percent when compared with 2015.

These numbers and all data in this report are based on the totals reported by the companies participating in the CTMR program. The totals here represent the majority of the U.S. market for cutting tools.

“The cutting tool year-over-year data continues to indicate 2016 is moving in the right direction,” says Steve Stokey, President of USCTI.“ With the uncertainty of the election behind us, businesses should be in a better position to confidently implement their plans. This should have a positive impact on the marketplace as we move into 2017.”

Greg Daco, Head of U.S. Economics at Oxford Economics adds that “after experiencing extreme volatility this summer, cutting tool shipments have stabilized. Overall, while the trend in durable goods orders and shipments remains soft, back-to-back monthly gains in orders are a signal activity may soon turn around. Looking forward, leading manufacturing indicators point to moderate growth supported by firming global activity and stabilizing domestic activity. The uncertainty surrounding a Trump presidency remains elevated, but there are indications that he will prioritize his pro-growth fiscal agenda over his protectionist agenda.”

The Cutting Tool Market Report is jointly compiled by AMT and USCTI, two trade associations representing the development, production and distribution of cutting tool technology and products. It provides a monthly statement on U.S. manufacturers’ consumption of the primary consumable in the manufacturing process – the cutting tool. Analysis of cutting tool consumption is a leading indicator of both upturns and downturns in U.S. manufacturing activity, as it is a true measure of actual production levels.
