With actual USMTO data at the halfway point for 2016, the model shows that 2016 unit orders will be down 14.7 percent and that 2017 unit orders will be down a further 3.7 percent. Based on scenario analysis, the model shows that unit orders in 2017 could be up as much as 0.4 percent and down as much 6.5 percent next year. So, the odds are 2017 will be a down year, but the question is down by how much. e blue line on the chart shows the annual rate of change of the fore- cast for the next 24 months while the shaded blue area shows the range of outcomes based on the scenario analysis. e range of variability between the model's specifi c fore- cast and the range based on various scenarios is because machine tool orders are extremely volatile month See "Orders" page 91 Machine Tool Orders Have Bottomed; 2017 Forecast Range +0.4% to -6.5% 20 16 12 8 4 0 -4 -8 -12 -16 -20 20 16 12 8 4 0 -4 -8 -12 -16 -20 Annual Rate of Change (%) 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 Forecast Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker opened IMTS 2016 with a speech highlighting three reasons for optimism in U.S. manufacturing.
