Start your engines: Operators will benefit from an extended upturn in domestic freight volumes

Over the five years to 2018, revenue for the Engine and Turbine Manufacturing industry is expected to decrease. However, this decline is largely the result of steady retracement from decade-high levels resulting from strong investments in industrial machinery that translated into more purchases of engines, turbines and related equipment, a trend which began to wane at the start of the five-year period. Moving forward, greater domestic consumer spending will strengthen demand for freight and highway transportation. As one of the industry's largest customers, increased freight trucking leads to more sales of diesel engines and related more.
