Pinpointing
success
Have you a fair idea of
your fair success?
On average, companies spend
40 per cent of their marketing
budgets on participating in
trade fairs. A princely sum, but
what do they get out of it?
The standing joke about the
cup of coffee at a trade fair
stand that costs (almost) its
own weight in gold betrays
the fact that budgets are subjected to a more carefree
treatment here than elsewhere. There is hard-and-fast
evidence indicating that, as
an AUMA survey has revealed,
no more than a quarter of
exhibitors bother themselves
with defining directly verifiable trade fair objectives
which would enable them to
assess the success of their
trade fair participation. – Are
you one of them?
Trade fairs play an important
role for a company as regards
both its sales and its image.
If prepared properly and used
intelligently, this cost factor
can be transformed into a
profitable investment. It all
depends on you!
It is essential to define trade
fair objectives. A must-do follow-up concept – one third of
exhibitors has no such thing,
according to the survey – is
part and parcel of each and
every trade fair strategy, i.e.
evaluation of trade fair
reports, qualification of business talks, following up contacts and establishing costs.
Ultimately, it is the definition
of potential which sets the
course for the success of the
next event.
There is no shortage of tools
and support for monitoring
the success of participation at
a trade fair, from simple
checklists via manuals and
software programs all the way
through to specialised consultants. Be that as it may,
there is nothing to beat carefully building up one’s own set
of individually formed assessment tools. As the saying
goes:“It’s not what you do,
but the way that you do it!”
Two-thirds booked out
EMO Hannover 2005 presents the best ideas for production
In the current year, EMO
Hannover 2005 will once
again be the top event in the
world of metalworking from
14 – 21 September. Some
seven months before the start
of the EMO (Exposition
Mondiale de la Machine
Outil), more than 1,600
exhibitors had already regis-
exhibitors are foreign-based,
and hail from a total of 35
countries. The largest groups
apart from the German
exhibitors come from Italy,
Switzerland, Taiwan, Spain
and Japan.
Elsinghorst forecasts that,
“The way things look at pres-
vative manufacturing technology: machine tools, tools,
tool and mould construction,
manufacturing and process
automation, software and
surface technology, as well as
measuring technology, quality
assurance, parts and accessories, and services. At present
the main emphasis of the
Current list with more than 1,600 names

tered. Their total exhibition
space at that point amounted
to 140,000 m2 net space. This
means that a good two-thirds
of the exhibition space
logged up by the Super EMO
in 2001 have already been
booked. Dr. Detlev Elsinghorst,
General Commissioner of
EMO Hannover 2005,
remarked that, “The EMO is
undisputedly the leading
international trade fair for the
branch. The VDW (German
Machine Tool Builders’
Association), as organiser of
the event, fully intends to
continue the fair’s 30-year
success story into 2005 and
beyond.” More than half the
ent, the EMO Hannover 2005
will be taking place in a very
positive global economic
climate. This will motivate
exhibitors to present their
best ideas, and will attract
international visitors who aim
to modernise their production
in order to keep pace with the
rest.” The German machine
tool industry is anticipating a
4 per cent growth in production for the year 2005.
According to initial VDW estimates, the worldwide machine
tool building sector is also set
to continue its growth.

goods offered is on milling
machines and machining centres, precision tools, lathes
and grinders.
EMO Hannover –
trend-setter function for new
metalworking technologies
and strategies
No other metalworking trade
fair is a match for EMO
Hannover as a global innovative forum for manufacturing
technology. Many new developments will be presented to
the broader trade public for
the first time at Hanover. In
the past too, almost all manufacturing innovations were
first presented at one of the
EMO fairs.
This is one of the main reasons why this trade fair provides the proper context for
transfer events at the interface between research and
industrial practice. If not at
EMO Hannover, which in
2001 attracted almost
200,000 international trade
visitors, then what other
venue could possibly be a
suitable forum for science
and industry to create trends,
discuss strategies, and broach
subjects which will mean
progress for the branch?
Dr. Detlev Elsinghorst, General Commissioner
of EMO Hannover 2005, forecasts: “The very
positive global economic climate will motivate exhibitors to present their best ideas
and will attract visitors who aim to modernise their production in order to keep pace
with the rest.”

15 and 16 September 2005
will see the symposium on
the present research project
“New machine tools for
tomorrow’s production.”
The event will be run by the
Federal Ministry of Education
and Research in cooperation
with the VDW. The public will
be given a first comprehensive
presentation of the project’s
findings, produced by more
than 80 project partners in
science and industry working
on a total of twelve projects.
The thematic network for
manufacturing technology
MANTYS operates at a
European level. It coordinates
various EU research projects
on manufacturing technology
and offers a framework for
the efficient exchange of findings between research and
industry. As a meeting place
for experts from throughout
the world, EMO Hannover is
the ideal forum for such
exchange. On 19 September
2005, MANTYS will present
the latest findings of its work
at a conference on “Machine
tools – impact of the latest
technologies and innovative
business practices.”

2005 – a year of new automobile models
EMO Hannover – cashing in on
internationalism
Each of the three regions in
the triad formed by Asia,
America, and Europe has its
own metalworking trade fairs.
To a greater or lesser extent,
these each serve their respective local markets. None of
these events is as international in scope and thus as eligible to be termed a global
trade fair, in terms not only of
exhibitors but also of visitors,
as is EMO Hannover. Of the
approximately 200,000 visitors to EMO Hannover 2001,
35 per cent came from a total
of 63 countries outside of
Germany. The largest nonEuropean delegations were
those from India, the USA,
Japan, Brazil and China. This
unparalleled internationalism
is very much appreciated
as a special asset of EMO
Hannover by the exhibitors.

The automobile year 2005 has
plenty of potential, upheld by
the catching up work being
done and by a whole series of
new model programmes. That
was the forecast given by
Germany’s Automobile
Industry Association (VDA) at
its annual press conference at
the end of January in Frankfurt/
Main.
Seen on a global scale, German
concerns have performed well,
expanding their worldwide
production to more than
13 million vehicles. One vehicle
in five manufactured worldwide is the brand product of a
German automobile concern,
with the figure as high as
23 per cent for passenger cars.
German manufacturers were
able to improve their market
position in most countries. In
VDA emphasised,“The model
offensive is taking hold.”
The average age of vehicles on
the road in Germany is currently 93 months, with the figure for petrol-fuelled vehicles
alone as high as 100 months
or 8.3 years. The replacement
of this vehicle stock in the
course of a revitalisation in the
automobile business would,
according to Prof. Gottschalk,
also constitutes a massive
“environmental development
programme”.
In total, turnover in the automobile industry rose by 8 per
cent in 2004 to 226 billion
euros.
Given the lack of dynamism on
the domestic market, the
German automobile industry
potential’, we will be able to
come close to our high export
levels once again in 2005.” He
expects that in Western Europe
and the USA, the markets are
more likely to stagnate.
Competitors’ rising market
shares should be countered
with crowding out tactics
based on vehicle benefits
rather than massive discounts.
The market is likely to rally
slightly in the new EU member
states, and a moderate continuation of the present market
growth will take place in the
remaining East European
countries. Growth rates will
also be more moderate in
South America and Asia. China
is at present in a state of flux.

underwent a process of international reformation, the

EMO Hannover as seen in
public opinion
During each of the trade fairs
it organises, the VDW commissions a comprehensive
visitor and exhibitor questionnaire conducted by an independent institute. A total of
more than 3,000 trade visitors
were questioned on EMO
Hannover 2001. The following
are the survey’s most significant findings:

Machine tools are the core of all industrial
production. Accordingly, the vast majority of
those attending the trade fair come from the
industrial sector. They amounted to 71 per
cent in 2001. The majority of them represent
the machine construction and automobile
industries.

Decisive role
For industrial customers in particular, a visit
to the EMO Hannover offers an opportunity
to put themselves in the picture regarding
the latest manufacturing technology, from
simple machines through to complex plant,
an indispensable means of maintaining and
improving any company’s competitiveness.
The predominant objective of the majority of
those attending is thus to gain information
on innovations and technical details.
However, more than one third (34 per cent)
also attend the EMO with hard-and-fast
investment intentions. Almost all of them are
of the opinion that they will receive the necessary information at EMO Hannover with
which to make their purchase decisions.

EMO Hannover gets top marks from all its
visitors. They acknowledge its quality. More
than 90 per cent regard the trade fair as
either a “good” or even a “very good” event.
In all the questionnaire’s categories they
award the event the top marks 1 and 2.
China they defended their
position as by far the leading
supplier with a market share
of 28 per cent. In Western
Europe, they further consolidated their position on the market, with their share of the
market rising to a good 46 per
cent. German manufacturers
have dominated the trend
towards diesel-fuelled passenger cars, and they were able to
sell 15 per cent more diesel cars
in Western Europe. Every second diesel car sold in Western
Europe is the brand product of a
German manufacturing group.
The VDA anticipates a further
rise during the current year of
German brands’ share of the
market in both Germany and
Western Europe. The German
market volume is expected to
be at about the same level as
last year – barring the excess
activity in December – i.e.
around 3.25 million passenger
cars. In this segment, according to the VDA, German brands
slightly increased their share
of the market to a figure of
70 per cent. Prof. Dr. Bernd
Gottschalk, President of the
will continue to aim at high
export figures in 2005. Prof.
Gottschalk pointed out,“We
are working on the assumption that, despite a monetary
policy obstacle course and a
few markets with no more
than ‘lateral development
was forced to consolidate with
regard to manufacturers’
structures and its sales and
distribution organisation. The
Chinese market nevertheless
remains an exceptionally
important one, even if with
less impressive growth rates.

For your diary: “New machine tools for
tomorrow’s production”
Symposium at EMO Hannover 2005 on 15 / 16 September 2005
How will we be producing
tomorrow? This is an
enthralling question that is
giving the industry, politics,
and the sciences no rest.
Companies of all sizes are acting today in a fast-changing
economic environment. The
pressure of rising costs, the
accelerating propagation of
new technologies, new
aggressive competitors on the
market, and the ever tighter
intermeshing of the world
economy are only a few keywords that describe this complex of problems. Germany
and its industry have only the
one chance: to employ imagination and highly trained persons in the development of
innovations that safeguard
their lead in technology.
Answers to this “how” will
be given by the symposium
“New machine tools for
tomorrow’s production” at
EMO Hannover 2005. This
transfer event will also be presenting the results of a core
research project of the same
name that about eighty partners from industry and the
economy have created.
The BMBF, the German
Federal Ministry of Education
and Research, utilises this
core project for the targeted
promotion of top technologi-
cal and organisational services for all aspects of the
machine tool as the heart of
industrial production. The
Ministry will be providing
about 25 million euros, and a
similar amount will be contributed by the industrial
partners.
A key constituent of the project is the transfer of results
for generating synergies. EMO
Hannover as the meeting
point for the whole specialised world of production
technologies for both
providers and users is the
ideal forum for presenting
research results to a broad
trade public. On the agenda
are twelve multidisciplinary
projects and a strategic
accompanying project. These
cover a wide range of subjects
that have something to offer
for every manufacturer and
every user of production technology.
WZM20xx –
development of a scenarioassisted analytical instrument
for developing strategies
HiDynMolder –
development of a higly
dynamic machining centre for
micro and precision mould
construction
MechaSpeed –
high-speed precision milling
and grinding centre with integrated mechatronics
MICROSTRUCT –
machine development for
manufacturing expansive
surfaces with functional
microstructures
SonicPrecision –

following trends
Almost all of the renowned
manufacturers of production
technology from all over the
world will be present at EMO
Hannover. For them the event
is the best visited innovation
forum and therefore an obligatory appointment for proving to their customers competence and technological performance. Many manufacturers orient their innovation
cycles specifically to this trade
fair. Almost all innovations for
production in the past were
premiered at an EMO.
Accordingly the visit to EMO
is also obligatory for international customers from all user
industries. Nowhere else can
the international trade public
from Europe, Asia, and
America meet such an
extraordinary concentration
of new products and services
as here in Hanover. Despite its
size, EMO Hannover is strictly
divided into product groups,
so visitors can specifically gain
a fast and extensive overview.
This facilitates orientation
and in addition makes the
trade fair attractive.
Global competition concentrates above all on enhancing
the machine availability and
flexibility and on cutting production costs. The modernisation of production technology
is therefore a constant challenge to all branches of industry. For this a broad range of
manufacturing technologies
are available that will be presented at EMO Hannover. The

steps as possible and that can
be quickly retooled and therefore used for a large number
of diverse products. Here, concepts like method integration
and reconfigurability are
named particularly on the
sectors with major users such
as the automotive industry.
In the discussion on future
manufacturing technologies
the methods for machining
new materials, e.g. fibre composites and ceramics, are gaining ground. Rapid prototyping
and rapid tooling methods are
gaining importance in efforts
towards ever shorter times to
market for new products.
Miniaturisation and microproduction are also marked by
trends whose ranges of applications at present still appear
limited, yet promise considerable potential for the future.
The same applies to clean
room technologies.
On the other hand a trend
can be observed that new
machines are concentrating
on only one method and one
reliable stable process – and
In both cases the essential
performance in developments
over the next few years will
consist in qualifying these
technologies for applications

of trends in the form of keywords.
Many users, particularly in the
highly developed industrial
nations, are concentrating on
automation. They need integrated systems, e.g. machines
fitted with robots, image processing systems, and automated materials flow systems.
In addition, demand is for

In addition, there is still
demand for technologies that
facilitate maintenance.
Sensors for monitoring
machine components, for
monitoring and, if necessary,
counteracting tool wear, and
for information and diagnostic functions via various communication media such as the
internet or mobile phones are
named here as examples.
Whether from home or abroad, visitors to the EMO wish to concentrate their attention on
essentials. In preparing for their visit, they make use of the media. Good reason for you too to
let the media put your company and its products right in the public eye, attracting visitors in
their droves to your stand at the EMO.
The EMO Hannover 2005 organiser, VDW, offers support for your professional media work in
the form of its comprehensive service pack. This will be sent to you in the near future. The
individual features of the media service pack include:

Success thanks to “Marketing hand in hand”
Among the countless metalworking trade fairs throughout the world, EMO Hannover
is indisputably the most
widely known. It also enjoys
an unrivalled reputation. This
unique position is the fruit of
assiduous attention to detail
over a period of decades with
regard to the fair’s quality and
its international character.
In the course of the years, the
fair’s organiser, VDW, has
established an appreciation
among experts and specialists
of EMO Hannover as the top
event within the branch. A
whole range of individual
activities and measures have
contributed – and still contribute – towards achieving
this goal. Taken together, they
ensure the success of the
trade fair for all involved. The
organisers have established a
firm place for EMO Hannover
in the minds of experts
throughout the world, while
at the same time – as the
trade association of the
machine tool industry – keeping a keen eye on global market developments and manufacturing technology requirements worldwide.
Press conferences, presentations, and other events
drawing attention to EMO
Hannover are held in more
than 60 countries on all continents across the globe. By
means of these events, the
organisers address important
manufacturers, customers,
and contact multipliers. As a
result, EMO Hannover is a
household name for
exhibitors, visitors, organisations, ministries and tour
operators alike – on a worldwide scale. And detailed, global reporting in trade and economic journals and in daily
newspapers creates the allimportant publication context
for the EMO.
Across Europe and across the
globe, the VDW promotes
this, the leading metalworking trade fair, focussing on
both well-established and
newly emerging markets.
EMO advertisements appear
in key trade periodicals and in
the business and daily press
in more than 150 countries
worldwide.
In addition, all within trade
circles are well aware that
detailed information on the
full EMO range of offers, and
on the individual exhibitors’
range of goods and services,
can be found online at
www.emo-hannover.de, and
that the electronic visitor
guidance system EBI at the
trade fair itself offers a wealth
of information, clearly
arranged according to technologies, on what is being
presented at EMO Hannover.
Nevertheless, all of this is only
one side of the coin. What has
enabled EMO Hannover to
become the absolutely top
metalworking trade fair is its
concept of cooperative marketing involving both organisers and exhibitors. While, for
the shared success and benefit of all involved, the VDW, as
the trade fair’s organiser, has
succeeded over the years in
establishing EMO Hannover
as the leading event within
the branch, the exhibitors
have pursued a strategic policy of winning customers. The
joint activities of organisers
and exhibitors have thus
always complemented each
other, culminating in the joint
success of EMO Hannover. To
this end, the VDW supplies
companies with material
informing them of global
EMO advertising activities.
This assists exhibitors when
planning and structuring
their own advertising measures. The VDW also supplies
its exhibitors directly with
advertising media which
enables them to benefit from
the familiarity of the EMO
brand, inviting their customers to this top branch
event, according to the motto:
“Cooperative advertising
ensures joint success!”

New year’s business off to a good start for
German machine tools
Boost from global economic situation
Business in 2004 fared even
better for Germany’s machine
tool sector than had been
forecast before the year was
out. The German Machine
Tool Builders’ Association
(VDW) anticipates sizeable
growth in production of what
is likely to be 8 per cent. The
Association also expects a
further 4 per cent growth in
2005.

More than any others, it was
the boom market China
which ensured such good
business. The People’s
Republic accounts for 17 per
cent of foreign demand and
13 per cent of all exports. The
volume of exports has tripled
over the last four years. China
was closely followed by the
USA as the second biggest
customer. For many years the
USA was the most important
buyer of German machine
tools, until exports slumped
by one third at the beginning
of the decade due to structural market changes within the
USA and increased foreign
investments on the part of
American industry. It was not
until 2004 that exports began
to increase again.
“The mood is exceptionally
good within the German
machine tool sector,” according to VDW Chairman, Carl
Martin Welcker, speaking at
the Association’s press conference in Frankfurt/Main. In
absolute terms, production in
2004 amounted to a volume
of 9.8 billion euros. According
to Welcker, this figure was
only ever exceeded in the
annus mirabilis 2001.
While it is true that, contrary
to all expectations, foreign
and domestic business fared
equally well in the first half of
2004, Welcker pointed out
that it was nevertheless
“clearly foreign business
which brought the main drive
to both demand and production over the year as a whole.”
Welcker drew attention to
the significant fact that Japan
has developed positively as a
customer. Although Japan is
certainly one of the major
markets worldwide, it is
also regarded as one of the
most difficult. As a rule, the
Japanese tend to rely on their
own manufacturing technology. Accordingly, less than 2 per
cent of Germany’s exports are
for the Japanese market but,
as Welcker pointed out, “there
is a great demand and a high
level of respect in Japan for
German products when it
comes to highly demanding
technologies in which
Orders increased by 19 per
cent to 9.7 billion euros. In
spite of the strength of the
euro, foreign orders rose during 2004 by almost 25 per
cent, while domestic customers “only” placed 11 per
cent more orders. The more
than 2 billion euros difference
in volume indicates the start
of a domestic upswing.

Operating and activity rates
both high – but increased
employment levels unlikely
The operating capacity figure
for 2004 averaged out at
89 per cent, reflecting the
high level of activity within
the branch. At a figure of 6.2
months, the backlog of orders
was slightly lower than the
previous year’s level. There is
considerable potential here,
especially if comparison is
made with maximum values
in past economic cycles.
Welcker remarked that “on
the other hand, technical processing times have dropped
significantly, so that there is a
limit to how far comparisons
can be made.”
An average 65,000 staff were
employed in 2004, a figure
which is 3 per cent or roughly
1,900 employees less than

the previous year. Although
the low was past by August,
Welcker forecast that
“increased employment can
only be anticipated in the very
long term, if at all.” The experience of the recent past has
shown that peak order periods in the extremely cyclical
machine tool trade are primarily coped with by means of
worktime accounts and loan
workers.
German machine tools well
positioned internationally
On the global market,
Germany was able to defend
its position unchallenged as
world vice-champion, second
only to Japan, and with a
20 per cent share of the market. Calculated in euros, German production rose by 8 per
cent (not counting parts and
accessories), whereas initial
VDW estimates suggest a rise
of 12 per cent to 37 billion
euros or even of 23 per cent
to 45 billion US dollars on a
world scale. Here too, overproportional growth clearly
took place in Asia, i.e. in
Taiwan, China, and Japan. And
America once again experienced a sturdy rise in production as it moved out of its historic all-time low.
Although there is talk of
slackening drive in global
economics generally, the
prospects are not so bad at
all as regards the individual
foreign markets.
In the USA, the economic
cycle is probably past its peak.
However, it is an undisputed
fact that US road vehicle
builders require to invest further in cost-cutting manufacturing technology if they even
wish to stabilise their share of
the market. Japan and China
are likely to remain trump. In
those South Asian countries
so heavily hit by the tsunami
flood disaster, the general
view is that there will be no
long-term negative repercussions for the economy.
Headed by Brazil, South
America’s national economies
continue their consolidation
course, significantly expanding their industrial capacities.
In Central and Eastern Europe,
industrial build-up is making
way for the expansion of
capacities. As a consequence
of the continued positive
global economic climate,
there is a steadily growing
willingness to make investments, even in the exportoriented countries of Western
Europe.

The VDW is expecting this year a
further growth of
12 per cent for the
world production of
machine tools.
On the basis of the positive
outcome of 2004, the German
machine tool branch has
entered the new business
year with plenty of verve. In
2005 too, machine tool manufacturing will primarily be
influenced by developments
in the world economy.
Looked at together, the VDW
sees very good reason to
expect a further growth of
4 per cent in production for
the year 2005.

Lively business for precision tools
The German precision tool
industry logged up 6 per cent
more orders in 2004 than in
the previous year, achieving a
total turnover of around 8 billion euros. This means that
the branch has held on to its
approximately 7 per cent
share of the total engineering
industry turnover.
The various product groups
contributed in vastly differing
degrees to the overall figure:
cutting and chucking tools
displayed considerable
growth over against the year
2003 as regards incoming
orders. The chucking devices
clocked up a rise of 13 per
cent, and thus even managed
to top cutting tools by a
whole 3 per cent. There are
clear signs of a positive trend
in this sector in the last quarter of 2004. Manufacturing,
measuring, and testing technologies also won a fair
amount of ground last year,
with orders increasing by
8 per cent and turnover by
6 per cent. This allowed
that particular sector of the
branch to continue the longlasting positive course it has
enjoyed in the past.
Matters were quite different
for the German tool construction industry. It was faced last
year with sluggish demand,
as a result of which it was
forced to accept a drop of
4 per cent in incoming orders
compared to 2003. Turnover
also amounted to around
4.5 per cent less than it had
been in the previous year.
ments. German exports to the
USA thus rose by 19 per cent,
those to France by 9 per cent,
and exports to Italy by 7 per
cent. China moved forward to
10th position, with a growth
figure of 57 per cent. By contrast, however, deliveries to
the new EU member states
dropped by 11 per cent in
2004.
The positive development in
incoming orders from abroad
is ample evidence for the fact
that German precision tools
were again in high demand
worldwide in 2004. With an
increase of more than 6.5 per
cent over against 2003,
German manufacturers were
able to consolidate their lead,
coming top of the world
export league with a more
than 22 per cent share of
world trade, ahead even of
Japan which only achieved
17 per cent.
Unfortunately, domestic

did, gaining by no more than

developments in the euro
exchange rate over against
the US dollar, foreign manufacturers of precision tools
were affected to varying
degrees by the slack demand
within Germany. Thus, for

while imports from the thirdin-line, Italy, dropped by 6 per

EU member states dropped by
an even more dramatic 14 per

Positive expectations for 2005
The precision tool industry is
expecting the same dynamism
in demand to hold well into
the year 2005, since some
catching up with postponed
investments may well be seen
in the course of the current
year. Over and above this factor, the branch is optimistic
that the top global trade fair
EMO Hannover 2005 will
help to stimulate demand.
Precision tools will once again
constitute the second-largest
group of exhibitors at this
year’s exhibition, second only
to machine tools. On the
whole, then, the hope is well
founded for a rise in turnover
of 4 per cent once again in
the year 2005.

German investment freeze beginning to thaw
Economic experts have mixed
feelings as they look ahead to
the further course of the current year. German-based companies, on the other hand, are
on the whole optimistic in
their outlook, planning to
invest more this year than
they did in 2004. It is, however, true that not all the companies concerned are investing with the primary aim of
expanding their capacity. For
many of them, the major concern is to modernise their
plants and to cut their production costs.
As seen from the companies’
perspective, the prospects are
looking fairly good for
increasing investments –
despite possible stumbling
blocks in the form of high oil
prices and the appreciation in
value of the euro. This, at
least, is a conclusion which
can be drawn from the latest
survey conducted in autumn
2004 by the German Institute
for Trade and Industry (IW) in
Cologne. According to the
survey, those companies planning to expand their investment budgets this year constitute a relative majority (at
a figure of 27 per cent) for the
first time since the first-ever
all-Germany survey was conducted in 2002. By contrast,
only 23 per cent of companies
are expected to put less
money into new plant and
business premises than they
did in 2004. The IW survey
More companies intend to increase their
investment budgets in the current year,

indicates a particularly optimistic outlook on the part of
West German manufacturers
of investment goods and
purchase materials and supplies, almost one third of
whom plan on making new
acquisitions.
The motivation behind the
investments, however, is highly varied in nature.
Modernisation. One of the
most important motives
named by companies in both
East and West Germany, for
example, was that of bringing
their machinery up to the latest technical standards again
after the investment freeze of
recent years.
Cost cutting. In the old West
German states, however, costs
continue to be by far the
most decisive factor. Almost
two-thirds of all companies
will make investments in
2005 which are aimed primarily at reducing production
costs. East of the River Elbe,
this is also the case in almost
50 per cent of all businesses.
The recent reduction in labour
costs – due to more flexible
work time, for example –
is sure to meet with the
approval of these companies.
This development was named
by almost 30 per cent in West
Germany and a good 20 per
cent in East Germany as
being a crucial investment
incentive.
Expanding capacity and
boosting sales. One of the
tell-tale signs of a solid economic upswing is when both
domestic and foreign demand
increase, resulting in companies expanding their manufacturing potential. The IW
survey gives much cause for
optimism on this particular
count:
Two companies in five in both
East and West Germany are
making new capacity investments this year.
In addition, roughly 20 per
cent of those asked explicitly
regard improved sales
prospects as a motivation
towards making investments
– whereby the companies
concerned regard the impulse
from domestic trading as
even more important than
that involving the export
trade.
