Industrial Machinery Manufacturers

Industrial Machinery Manufacturers

Overview

The 3,000 industrial machinery manufacturers in the US produce the machines required to make other products. These can range from relatively simple mechanical modules that perform a single function to complex computer-controlled machines that perform multiple processing functions. Key customer markets are woodworking, metals, plastics, paper, textiles, bookbinding, printing, food, and semiconductor production.

Competition From Imports

Industrial machinery manufacturers must compete with imports, which average about 84% of US consumption.

Dependence On Exports

Exports account for about 83% of US industrial machinery manufacturers’ revenue and create additional risks for manufacturers.
