May 2014 Orders Comments

Trailing three-month order trends remained strong, as global business conditions continued to improve despite persisting uncertainty in some markets. Excluding currency translation, which added 1 percentage point, underlying orders grew 8 percent. All segments reported growth, led by Process Management strength in large, multi-year projects, and Network Power, with underlying growth above the consolidated total for the last three months.

Process Management orders were strong, led by robust growth in unconventional oil and gas investment in North America. Market conditions were favorable in other regions as well, as Europe benefited from North Sea project activity, China and India drove growth in Asia, and Mexico led improvement in Latin America. Middle East/Africa remained weak. Currency translation added 3 percentage points, primarily due to backlog revaluation.

Industrial Automation orders continued to benefit from gradually recovering demand, with mixed trends among markets. Strong growth in power generating alternators and fluid automation and modest growth in electrical distribution offset slower demand in the other businesses. Currency translation added 2 percentage points.

Network Power orders growth reflected improving global market conditions for data center and telecommunications infrastructure investment. Europe remained strongest, led by large data center project activity, with demand in North America and Asia also solid. Latin America improved but continued to exhibit underlying weakness.

Climate Technologies orders grew moderately, as global demand remained strong for the refrigeration business. Market conditions were solid for the air conditioning business, led by North America and Asia, while temperature controls was down. Overall trends continue to support the outlook for a solid year.

Commercial & Residential Solutions orders increased modestly, reflecting slower market conditions for U.S. housing the past six months. Growth in the professional tools, wet/dry vacuums, food waste disposers and residential storage businesses offset weakness in the commercial storage business.
