The mechanical engineering companies in Hesse had to accept a 4.0 percent decline in sales in 2018. The main reason for this was the 8.3 percent decline in foreign sales, which increased only in October 2018. Above all, sales to other foreign countries fell significantly by 12.6 percent.
With 4.9 percent sales growth, mechanical engineering in Rhineland-Palatinate had a good year in 2018. The remarkable thing about this is that both domestic and foreign sales have increased at almost the same rate.
With sales growth of 5.0 %, mechanical engineering in Rhineland-Palatinate will grow slightly faster than German mechanical engineering as a whole until November 2018. The remarkable thing about this is that both domestic and foreign sales have increased at almost the same rate.
Only in October did sales to other foreign countries in the Hessian mechanical engineering sector rise in 2018, so that by November total sales had fallen by 9% to -2.1%. By contrast, sales to the euro zone rose slightly by 4.6 %.
So far, sales growth in mechanical engineering in Saarland in 2018 could only be achieved in April, otherwise only declines. However, these are due to a base effect due to the high double-digit sales growth in 8 months of the previous year.
