October U.S. Cutting Tool Consumption Shows Major Growth

Dec 18, 2017

October U.S. cutting tool consumption totaled $198.00 million according to the U.S. Cutting Tool Institute (USCTI) and The Association For Manufacturing Technology (AMT). This total, as reported by companies participating in the Cutting Tool Market Report (CTMR) collaboration, was up 13.2 percent from September’s $174.92 million and up 17.2 percent when compared with the $169.00 million reported for October 2016. With a year-to-date total of $1.835 billion, 2017 is up 8.0 percent when compared with 2016.

These numbers and all data in this report are based on the totals reported by the companies participating in the CTMR program. The totals here represent the majority of the U.S. market for cutting tools.


Currently, economic conditions that would support gains in manufacturing are on the upswing. Third quarter GDP growth of 3.3 percent was led by strength in business investment (up 4.7 percent) and equipment (up 10.4 percent). In addition, the ISM manufacturing index remains near 60 percent, the strongest performance since 2004, implying solid growth next year.

The Cutting Tool Market Report is jointly compiled by AMT and USCTI, two trade associations representing the development, production and distribution of cutting tool technology and products. It provides a monthly statement on U.S. manufacturers’ consumption of the primary consumable in the manufacturing process — the cutting tool. Analysis of cutting tool consumption is a leading indicator of both upturns and downturns in U.S. manufacturing activity, as it is a true measure of actual production levels.
