Overall, sensor and measurement again demonstrated the stability and continuous growth of a future-oriented industry. The AMA members are expecting a continued growth in turnover of four percent.
“The market statistics for our branch of industry show a reassuring, stable growth for the second quarter,” says AMA general manager Thomas Simmons about the association’s statistics. “Our industry is leading the positive development with a long-term trend in growth. Since 2010 our members have generated a rise of four percent per quarter on average – equivalent to a turnover growth of about five percent per year. With this positive development, the sensor industry remains on the rise.”
