June, 23, 2016 -­‚Äê 2015 bookings in the process measurement and automation industry declined approximately 4.4% according to data reported by members in various bookings reports. This report provides an overview of that data exclusively for members.

MCAA collects data from its member companies for a variety of reports. On a monthly basis, we collect Domestic and Direct Export bookings information for the US, Canada and Rest of World.  Quarterly, the Association collects more detailed information by product category as well as by user industry. Bookings are also collected on a monthly basis from the distribution companies that are Channel Partner members of the Association. Data is reported in confidence and the Association takes great care to avoid individual data disclosures by using aggregated totals. If you are not currently participating, a review of this information may help you understand the potential benefit of these programs.

Looking at data from companies that participated in the bookings reports consistently over the past 10 years, we see that bookings in 2015 took their first downturn after having trended upwards for several years after the “Great Recession” of 2009. In the six years since, bookings are up a total of 46.4%, however 2015 represents a decrease of 2.3% over the 2014 consistent reporter total bookings. To make this comparison, we used only data from companies that reported consistently over the 10-­‚Äêyear period. Total actual bookings reported by all members participating in the bookings reports as of December 2015 was $5.8 Billion

In addition to data that is published from the aggregation of member-­‚Äêcontributed data,  Global Automation Research prepares an annual forecast for MCAA looking out 5 years.
