Posted June 13, 2018
The figures of the 1Q 2018 are clear: it will be a positive year for technologies dedicated to the furniture industry and to wood and wood-based materials. Such trend is confirmed by the quarterly survey of Acimall, the Confindustria-member industry association, that depicts a 1Q in line with the excellent results of 2017. 

Now, the January-March period feeds optimism, recording 19.2% growth compared to the first three months of 2017. Export remains the key driver (up by 22.1% from the 1Q of last year), while the domestic market increased by only 3.7%, as Italian association of woodworking machinery manufacturers Acimall said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.

The orders book has gone down to 3.4 months (from 3.6 in the previous quarter), while prices as of January 1st have slightly increased (0.6 percent).

The quality survey for the quarter under scrutiny indicates that, according to 65% of the sample, the production trend is positive (stationary according to 29%, decreasing according to 6%).
