According to trade publication Modern Materials Handling (MMH), citing a new study by The Freedonia Group, global demand for materials handling products is forecast to climb 4% annually through 2016 to $123.6 billion.
MMH said the U.S. market, which accounted for 22% of global sales in 2011, is expected to remain the leading consumer through 2016. After a period of sluggish gains between 2006 and 2011, demand in the U.S. will perform better through 2016, bolstered by improved manufacturing conditions, especially in the motor vehicle industry.
