In its 2012 Outlook, the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM)recaps the results of its survey of members in the ag sector for U.S., Canadian, and Rest of World markets. And they provide data that reviews 2011 data and forecasts into 2014. Manufacturers also ranked influencers on their business, including weather, energy costs, interest rates, Tier 4, and more.
Forecasts represent the average of responses from member companies in each product line. Member companies responded only to questions about the specific products they manufacture or market. Responses represent member companies’ forecast for the industry as a whole, rather than for their particular companies.
AEM is the North American based international trade group for companies that manufacture equipment, products and services used worldwide in the general construction, agricultural, forestry, mining and utility fields.
