After four years of strong growth, driven in particular by aeronautics, the automobile and mechanics, purchases of machine tools in France fell slightly in 2018 according to the annual market study of Symop, the professional union of the sector . Sales reached 1.632 billion euros in France, down 0.6% compared to 2017. Faced with this slowdown, French producers have held up better than their European neighbors, especially German and Italian. Their positioning in niche markets, which are rather high-end, is therefore beneficial to them. With 739 million euros of machines produced in 2018, they constitute only 3% of European production. Orders increased very slightly (+ 0.9%).
The Symop expects a growth of 2% in the machine tool market in 2109 due to the international economic situation, marked by Brexit and the Sino-American trade war.
