2016 World Machine Tool Survey

This is the 51th edition of an independent annual survey that collects statistics from machine-tool-producing countries and compares them in U.S. dollars.

� This is the 51st edition of an independent annual survey that collects statistics from machine tool consuming and producing countries and compares them in real U.S. dollars. It is conducted through the research department of Gardner Business Media, Inc., Cincinnati, Ohio USA, by Steve Kline, director of market intelligence, and Nancy Eigel-Miller, research manager.

For 2015, Gardner collected actual or estimated data on production, exports and imports from 26 countries, as it has in previous years. However, new to this year’s survey is actual import and export data for every country that imported at least $100 million of machine tools in at least one year since 2001. This added 34 more countries to the overall survey.
