January 2014 Orders Comments

Trailing three-month orders increased modestly, as global business investment continues to trend slightly favorable overall, with mixed conditions among markets. Excluding unfavorable currency translation of 2 percentage points, underlying growth moved toward the high end of the 3 to 4 percent range reported over the past several months. All segments grew, with Process Management and Industrial Automation driving sequential improvement, overcoming unusually harsh weather in January that is expected to continue to hamper near-term growth of sales and orders into February.

Process Management orders growth reflected continued strong market conditions in the energy and chemical industries. Excluding unfavorable currency translation of 4 percentage points, underlying orders increased 6 percent, led by robust demand in Latin America and Middle East/Africa, and supported by continued growth in Europe and North America. Market conditions remained mixed in Asia, as strength in China and India was offset by weakness in Australia, primarily due to large projects in the prior year.

Industrial Automation orders improved, led by better market conditions in the electrical distribution, power generating alternators, and motors and drives businesses. Large projects in the prior year contributed to a decline in the renewable energy business.

Network Power orders were flat, with underlying orders up modestly, as currency translation deducted 2 percentage points. Data center markets remained mixed, with continued strength in Europe and Asia offset by softness in the Americas. Global telecommunications infrastructure spending slowed from robust levels.

Climate Technologies orders grew moderately, as refrigeration markets remained strong in Asia and Europe, and the controls and sensors businesses reported robust growth. North America air conditioning demand was sluggish, reflecting weather-related moderation.

Commercial & Residential Solutions order trends improved, as U.S. residential market strength continued. Growth in the professional tools and food waste disposers businesses more than offset slower market conditions in the wet/dry vacuums and storage businesses.
