The principal drivers for capital investments are traditionally the automotive industry, electrical engineering and electronics industries, metal product manufacturers, and the mechanical engineering sector. For 2016, Machine tool consumption is predicted to rise by 4.2 %. Order bookings show a moderate rise of 1 % in 2015, amounting to Euros 14.9 billion. Last year, the German machine tool industry produced machines worth Euros 15.1 billion, corresponding to an increase of 4 %, with 70% of the goods being exported.
