Tutorials on the VDMA statistics database
The situation in most mechanical engineering companies is currently characterized by the tense situation with materials and preliminary products. Not only disrupted supply chains are causing problems, but also the sharp rise in prices.
Here you can find information about the modules "Foreign trade in machinery (annual values)" and "German, EU27 and UK foreign trade in machinery (monthly values)" of the VDMA statistics database.
How are official statistics structured? Can comments to the headings be found?
The ifo Business Survey regularly provides indicators that allow an assessment of the economic development as well as the mood in companies. These so-called leading indicators can provide important information for assessing the future course of business.
With a monthly update, which is exclusively available for download to VDMA member companies, we inform you about the development of the price indices for goods in the field of process engineering.
Global machinery turnover is expected to grow by 4 percent in real terms in 2022. However, a resurgence of the corona pandemic could limit growth to 2 percent. The outlook for 2023 offers a spectrum ranging from growth to stagnation.
