Where are we now? <ul><li>Global recession is easing, manufacturing back on a growth track, the worst is presumably over </li></ul><ul><li>Manufacturing must adjust to impending demand increases </li></ul><ul><li>Significant investments will still need to be made in many sectors, (Oil and Gas, Power) </li></ul><ul><li>Some sectors of the manufacturing economy may not ever recover to their previous status (US Automotive Industry for Example) </li></ul><ul><li>We have looming, long-term crises that will be addressed with the help of more advanced forms of automation </li></ul>
The Global Recession: Not Over Yet <ul><li>Most believe that US recession is now over, but economic reports make it too early to call an end. </li></ul><ul><li>Employment and real estate, housing continue to drag down US economy. </li></ul><ul><li>“ The 5.7 percent annual growth rate in the fourth quarter was the fastest pace since 2003. The Commerce Department report Friday is the strongest evidence to date that the worst recession since the 1930s ended last year, though an academic panel that dates recessions has yet to declare an end to it.” </li></ul><ul><li>Reuters: Germany said its economy shrank 5% in 2009 and probably stagnated in the fourth quarter, compounding concerns that Europe's recovery will be rocky. </li></ul><ul><li>Reuters: China is expected to return to double-digit economic growth in the fourth quarter of 2009, partly due to a low comparison base in the fourth quarter of 2008, when GDP growth dipped to 6.8 percent. </li></ul>
Impact on Manufacturing: A look at Recent PMIs from Around the World <ul><li>PMIs, or Purchasing Managers Indices are a good indicator of overall health of manufacturing. Shows purchasing manager trends in orders for materials. Number of Below 50 indicates a general contraction in manufacturing. </li></ul><ul><li>At 56.1 in January, up from 54.6 in December, the JPMorgan Global Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index registered its highest reading for 5.5 years. The latest improvement in overall operating performance reflected accelerated growth of production and new orders, while a slight gain in staffing levels was signaled for the first time since March 2008. </li></ul><ul><li>The most recent Markit Eurozone Manufacturing PMI reached 51.6 in De-cember, up 0.4 percent points from November and the highest reading since March of 2008. According to Markit, Germany and France spear-headed the upturn, with growth in Germany marking a 26-month high in November. </li></ul><ul><li>December marked a fifth consecutive month of expansion in the ISM PMI, while the overall US economy grew for the eighth consecutive month. The PMI for December reached 55.9 percent, which marks the highest reading since April of 2006. </li></ul>

German Manufacturing PMI Data from Market Economics Indicates Turnaround <ul><li>Germany's manufacturing sector improved further in December but below the flash estimate, the BME/Markit Economics said on Monday. The seasonally adjusted manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index or PMI increased to 52.7 in December from 52.4 in November. – Markit Economics </li></ul>
China Manufacturing PMI Indicates Recovery <ul><li>At 56.1 in December, up from 55.7 a month previously, the headline HSBC China Manufacturing PMI™ pointed to a marked improvement of operating conditions in the Chinese manufacturing sector that was the second-fastest recorded by the series to date. For Q4 as a whole, the PMI averaged its highest reading in the survey history. </li></ul><ul><li>Manufacturing production in China rose sharply in December, with the average rate of expansion for Q4 the fastest since Q2 2004. Where a rise in output was signalled, panellists widely attributed this to greater inflows of new work. </li></ul>Source: Markit Economics
India Manufacturing PMI Shows Expansion <ul><li>A rebound in manufacturing helped India’s economic growth accelerate for the first time since 2007 in the second quarter, a recent report showed. </li></ul><ul><li>Policies employed by the central bank and the government are providing a stimulus to the economy worth more than 12 percent of gross domestic product. </li></ul>Source: CLSA
Brazilian Manufacturing Industry Back on an Expansion Path <ul><li>The headline seasonally adjusted Brazil Manufacturing PMI™ rose slightly since November, hitting its highest level for just over two years. The latest reading signaled a robust improvement in the health of the Brazilian manufacturing economy. Underlying this expansion were faster increases in output and employment, while new order growth remained sharp. </li></ul>
Russian PMI in Decline <ul><li>Business conditions in Russia’s manufacturing sector deteriorated further at the end of 2009, according to December survey findings from VTB Capital. Output was only marginally higher than in November, and new orders fell for the second month running. </li></ul><ul><li>Meanwhile, manufacturers continued to shed staff and cut inventories. Input and output prices both rose on the month but, in both cases, the rates of inflation remained historically weak. </li></ul>
Latest Manufacturing Institute for Supply Management (ISM) Report On Business <ul><li>Manufacturing growth accelerated in January as the PMI registered 58.4 percent, an increase of 3.5 percentage points when compared to December's seasonally adjusted reading of 54.9 percent. This is the sixth consecutive month of growth in the manufacturing sector, and the highest reading for the Index since August 2004 when it registered 58.5 percent. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Overall, the recovery in manufacturing is continuing, but there are still some industries mired in the downturn as evidenced by the seven industries still in decline." </li></ul>
Latest Manufacturing ISM Report On Business Month PMI Month PMI Jan 2010 58.4 Jul 2009 49.1 Dec 2009 54.9 Jun 2009 45.3 Nov 2009 53.7 May 2009 43.2 Oct 2009 55.2 Apr 2009 40.4 Sep 2009 52.4 Mar 2009 36.4 Aug 2009 52.8 Feb 2009 35.7 Average for 12 months – 48.1 High – 58.4 Low – 35.7
US Durable Goods Rise <ul><li>Orders for durable goods, those meant to last several years, rose 1 percent. Last week, the government estimated they had climbed 0.3 percent for December. </li></ul><ul><li>Bookings for capital goods excluding aircraft and military equipment, a measure of future business investment, increased 2.2 percent after a 3.2 percent jump. Shipments of those goods, used to calculate gross domestic product, rose 2.1 percent in December, the biggest gain since March 2008. </li></ul>
USBLS Productivity and Costs (Output per Hour of all Persons) Rising Manufacturing sector productivity grew 13.4 percent in the third quarter of 2009, as output rose 8.4 percent and hours worked fell 4.4 percent (tables A and 3). The third quarter gain in manufacturing productivity was the largest in the series, which begins in the second quarter of 1987.
Industrial Production and Manufacturing Capacity Utilization in the US Increasing For the fourth quarter as a whole, manufacturing output increased at an annual rate of 5.7 percent.
Canada’s Manufacturing Sales Increase in October… <ul><li>Gains in some Canadian manufacturing sales sectors were offset by losses in others for a net gain of 0.1 percent in November, Statistics Canada said Wednesday. </li></ul><ul><li>Manufacturing sales were worth $42.6 billion in November, and represented the fifth increase in manufacturing sales in six months, the report said. </li></ul><ul><li>Among the major gainers were chemical manufacturers, which reported a 5.3 percent monthly increase and petroleum and coal product sales rose 2.9 percent, StatsCan said. </li></ul><ul><li>The largest drag on overall performance was a 4.3 percent decline in the transportation industry and some of its sub-sectors. </li></ul>
… But Canada’s Industrial Capacity Utilization Falls <ul><li>In the manufacturing industries, the capacity utilization rate increased to 65.6%, from the record low of 64.7% in the second quarter. </li></ul><ul><li>This increase followed four quarters of decline. It was attributable in part to strength in the transportation equipment industry, where capacity utilization rose for a second straight quarter following eight consecutive quarterly declines. </li></ul>
Capital Spending has Yet to Make Full Recovery <ul><li>BATON ROUGE, LA--(Marketwire - January 4, 2010) - Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- The goalposts keep getting moved. Owners and operators of oil and gas terminals and transmission projects in North America are now looking to the second half of 2010 for a recovery in capital spending, according to Jesus Davis, Industrial Info's manager of oil and gas industry markets. "Six months ago, those owners and operators thought capital spending might return in the first half of 2010," Davis said. "Right now, and for the next six months, they're just trying to keep their doors open." </li></ul><ul><li>Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) today announced a $21.6 billion capital and exploratory spending program for 2010, a five percent decrease from projected 2009 expenditures. Included in the 2010 program are $1.6 billion of expenditures by affiliates, which do not require cash outlays by Chevron's consolidated companies. </li></ul><ul><li>SUGAR LAND, TX, Nov 16, 2009 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- On Friday, November 13, Suncor Energy Incorporated (Calgary, Alberta) announced capital spending plans for 2010. The company plans to invest approximately US$5.24 billion, with $1.43 billion going to growth projects and the remainder going toward sustaining existing operations. The growth projects include the restart of construction on stages 3 and 4 of the company's Firebag bitumen production facility, leading Suncor President and CEO Rick George to say in a conference call, "This officially restarts the growth of oil sands." </li></ul>
Capital Spending has Yet to Make Full Recovery <ul><li>Global spending on oil and gas exploration and production has been projected to rise by 11 per cent to $439 billion in 2010, reversing a drop in pending in 2009 as energy prices climb. A survey conducted by analysts at Barclays Capital on 387 oil and gas producers showed that the increase in the spending on exploration and production followed the drop in spending of 15 percent in 2009 from the previous year, when oil prices reached a record high. </li></ul><ul><li>Exxon on Monday (Feb 1) said capital spending reached $27.1 billion last year, up 3.6% from a year earlier. Fourth-quarter spending reached $8.3 billion, Exxon's highest three-month total ever. Exploration expenses charged to income, which capture spending on unsuccessful wells, rose 39% last year. </li></ul>
Another Key Indicator: the Price of Oil <ul><li>Long term oil prices are going to go up. </li></ul><ul><li>There is a fundamental gap in long term supply versus demand. </li></ul><ul><li>The U.S. raised its forecast for crude-oil prices in 2010 by 1.5 percent on speculation that consumption will increase as the global economy recovers. </li></ul><ul><li>Jan 14: West Texas Intermediate oil, the U.S. benchmark, will average $79.83 a barrel this year, up from last month’s forecast of $78.67, the Energy Department said today in its monthly Short-Term Energy Outlook. That’s up 29 percent from the 2009 average price of $61.66 a barrel. </li></ul>
International Energy Agency (IEA) report shows Long-term Shortage & Supply Concerns <ul><li>Energy investment worldwide has plunged over the past year in the face of a tougher financing environment, weakening final demand for energy and lower cash flow. </li></ul><ul><li>In the oil and gas sector, most companies have announced cutbacks in capital spending, as well as project delays and cancellations, mainly as a result of lower cash flow. </li></ul><ul><li>Falling energy investment will have far-reaching and, depending on how governments respond, potentially serious consequences for energy security, climate change and energy poverty. </li></ul><ul><li>The capital required to meet projected energy demand through to 2030 in the Reference Scenario is huge, amounting in cumulative terms to $26 trillion (in year-2008 dollars) — equal to $1.1 trillion (or 1.4% of global gross domestic product [GDP]) per year on average. </li></ul>Source: IEA, Seekingalpha
