The gap between export and domestic sales is widening. Shortly stated, this is the current situation of woodworking technology, based on the latest statistics published by the Acimall Studies office about the first quarter 2012.
The quarterly survey shows a moderate shrinkage of total orders, down by 4.6 percent compared to the same period of 2011. The heavy drop on the national market (minus 24.8 percent) was largely compensated by orders from abroad, up by 4.25 percent.
The orders book, at the time of the survey, covered a timeframe of 2.3 months; since January 1, 2012, prices have increased by 0.3 percent approximately.
