Confidence on the Rise for 2014 U.S. Fluid Power Industry

By Icfluid

In January and July of each year, the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA) conducts its Industry & Market Outlook Survey. The July 2013 survey was sent to marketing representatives of NFPA manufacturing and distributor members. The following is a summary of responses received as of August 1, 2013.

 Whereas the results are prepared as a service to members, we do not feel it appropriate to share all of the results. However, the results of the following question piqued our interest:

What are you expectations for 2014 (expectations for 2013 are in parenthesis)?

  • Building and connecting members to an educated fluid power workforce
  • Promoting the technological advancement of fluid power
  • Serving as a forum where all fluid power channel partners work together

We would love to hear from you. What are your expectations for 2014?
