Italian textile machinery orders index rises 6% in Q3
The orders index for Italian textile machinery rose by six per cent in the third quarter of 2017, compared to the same period in 2016, according to the data from the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers (ACIMIT). Continuing the positive trend witnessed in the previous quarter, the orders index increased to 107.3 points (2010 basis = 100).

The orders index for foreign markets, which account for more than 85 per cent of total Italian textile machinery sales, increased by six per cent to 119.4 points for July-September quarter.

In Italy’s domestic market, the orders index for the third quarter was up by 8 per cent to 51.5 points.

“Orders have continued their growth trend, making us confident that we will close out the year on a positive note,” commented ACIMIT president Alessandro Zucchi.

“The measures relating to Industry 4.0, as envisaged in the upcoming Financial Budget Law, could very well keep the trend alive towards the digitalisation process necessary for the entire Italian textile sector,” said Zucchi. (RKS)
