October Trends Report - Sales and Orders Robust

Industry Trends Report

According to this month’s Industry Trends report, sales and orders remained robust in 3Q with broad based end market strength. Notably, oil & gas activity appears solid, driven by improved rig count and rebuild activity. Within the quarter, sales were up 12% in September following 13% in August even with one less selling day.

Order growth was also up 12% in 3Q, similar to 2Q. Orders in September were up 11% vs. 14% growth in August, all demonstrating solid growth potential. Distributors and manufacturers overall have maintained their 2017 outlook at 9% growth on average. This is up from an initial outlook of 3% and follows a decline of ~5% in 2016.
