VDMA: TOP 10 Sales Markets in 2009

VDMA (German Engineering Federation), Frankfurt/Main, Germany, reported: China once again topped the list of the most important markets for German plastics and rubber machinery in 2009, in spite of a 27.8% decline in German exports. 13.5% of the total were supplied to the Chinese market. As in the previous year, the US took second place, although sales to that market were down by 41.7%. Russia (down 42.1%) just about managed to hold on to third place, with India, up by 29.8%, catching up fast. As a result, the Asian subcontinent has shot up from 12th to 4th place in the table of sales markets. Others moving into the top 10 are Austria in 9th place (rising from 13th spot, down 27.5%) and Mexico, which has climbed 5 places to 10th (down 22.0%). Exports of plastics and rubber machinery as a whole fell by 33.9% last year to 2 637 million EUR.
