February 2014 Orders Comments

Trailing three-month orders growth continued to reflect slightly improving global macroeconomic conditions, with mixed demand among geographies and markets. Excluding unfavorable currency translation of 2 percentage points, underlying orders increased 4 percent, as all segments reported growth and four of five improved sequentially. Market conditions remained favorable in Asia, with solid demand in China, while political instability in Russia and the Ukraine has dampened demand in that region. The harsh weather in the U.S. continued to adversely affect orders and sales in February, which are expected to be recovered over the next several months.

Process Management orders were flat, including a currency translation deduction of 3 percentage points. Continued strength in energy and chemical markets supported modest underlying growth, with strong demand in North America and modest increases in Europe and Middle East/Africa. Latin America was slower and conditions in Asia were unchanged, with strength in China and India offset by slower demand in Australia related to large projects in the prior year.

Industrial Automation orders accelerated, as market conditions for industrial goods improved. Growth was led by the power generating alternators and motors and drives businesses, and supported by increases in the mechanical power transmission, electrical distribution, and fluid automation businesses.

Network Power orders growth reflected slight improvement in market conditions, after a currency translation deduction of 2 percentage points. Demand for data center infrastructure remained mixed, as continued strong momentum in Europe and Asia offset slower markets in the Americas. Orders in the telecommunications infrastructure business were steady.

Climate Technologies global markets continued to support moderate growth, led by strength in Europe and Asia. Improved demand in North America residential air conditioning markets and the global refrigeration business drove modest sequential acceleration. The controls and sensors businesses continued to report robust growth.

Commercial & Residential Solutions orders increased modestly, supported by strength in U.S. residential markets. The professional tools and food waste disposers businesses continued to lead growth, more than offsetting softness in the storage businesses.
