This past February, NFPA launched the Global Market Reports and Forecasts, a collection of monthly and quarterly global market reports that allow you to investigate every angle of our global marketplace.  From high-level macro data and leading indicators, to very detailed analysis and forecasts of popular customer markets.  Created and published by Oxford Economics.

NFPA is happy to announce an early addition to this new global resource, the World Economic Prospects Report.  Ideal for those members who need to quickly examine the latest economic developments and policy changes around the globe, but who also need long-term forecasts for key economic indicators for over 60 countries.

The World Economic Prospects Report includes:
  • Highlights and Key Issues for each country’s economic situation and prospects, including explanations of the main factors involved.
  • At-a-Glance Charts, which show the latest economic trends, home sales, GDP, trade balance, manufacturing shipments and orders, and much more.
  • Long Term Forecasts for 25 economic and financial indicators.
  • Background and facts of each country’s place in the world, with details concerning each economy, political system and government policies.
This monthly report will be joining an already impressive line-up of global reports that include the, Global Fluid Power Report and Forecast, Global Industry Forecasts, Global Industry Briefings, By-Country Briefings and Forecasts.

These reports are an exclusive benefit of membership and are available to all NFPA members.

Important Reminder: NFPA has also recently integrated the hydraulic and pneumatic global demand forecast data from these popular reports into NFPA’s Stats Dashboard.  NFPA’s new web-based interactive tool now allows you to graph the future global demand for hydraulics and pneumatics by country and by global region to add to your own custom stats dashboard homepage.
