June 2014 Orders Comments

Trailing three-month orders grew 5 percent, moderating from recent trends as uneven project timing contributed to slower growth. All segments grew, with Process Management and Industrial Automation strongest, and currency translation added 2 percentage points. Business investment levels continued to recover, albeit slowly and mixed among industries, as global economic conditions reflected uncertainty in some markets. Near term trends are expected to improve, with underlying orders growth anticipated between 5 and 7 percent in the fourth quarter.

Process Management orders reflected solid market conditions, supported by sustained strength in the energy and chemical industries, even as trends slowed due to uneven project timing. Strong demand in the Americas and Asia was led by Canada, Mexico, and India, and moderate growth in Europe was driven by North Sea projects, offsetting slower demand in Russia. Middle East/Africa remained weak. Currency translation added 4 percentage points, primarily due to backlog revaluation.

Industrial Automation orders trends remained steady, as global market conditions for capital goods continued to recover gradually. Growth was led by power generating alternators and fluid automation, with more modest growth in the other businesses. Currency translation added 1 percentage point.

Network Power orders increased modestly, reflecting solid growth for telecommunications infrastructure and mixed market conditions for data center solutions. Trends in Asia were strong, North America steady, and Europe soft, as a large data center project dropped out of the reporting period. Weakness continued in Latin America. Currency translation added 1 percentage point.

Climate Technologies orders growth continued, moderating slightly. Strength in air conditioning was led by Asia and the residential business in North America, while commercial markets remained slow. In refrigeration, gains in the global stationary and transportation businesses were partially offset by soft industrial demand. Growth decelerated in Europe. Sensors and controls demand remained soft, particularly in North America.

Commercial & Residential Solutions orders improved slightly, as market conditions improved modestly in North America. Growth was led by the professional tools and residential storage businesses.
