With the IFPE/ConExpo show right around the corner reports of continued growth in fluid power in 2010, this is a very exciting time for the fluid power industry. From all appearances, mobile hydraulics, industrial hydraulics, and pneumatics are all on the rise as we close out 2010.
The forecast from this summer's NFPA Economic Outlook Conference was for continued growth in 2011. The IFPE is the largest fluid power display in America. All of this ads up to a huge improvement from where we were 18 months ago.
Most of my clients are telling me that 2010 has been a very good year. The excitement is building for the IFPE. I can now say that I really feel good about the near term and long term future of the fluid power industry.
