On December 9, 2021, Japan Machine Tool Builders’ Association (JMTBA) announced preliminary figures of machine tool orders in November. The total amount of orders received was 145.4 billion yen, up 64.0% from the same month last year. Orders decreased by 2.6% from the previous month, the first decrease in three months, but exceeded 140 billion yen for three consecutive months.
Domestic demand was 49.7 billion yen, up 84.1% from the same month last year and down 1.0% from the previous month. Subsidies continued to have an effect, but the recovery of non-subsidized orders also increased, and domestic demand continues to be at a solid level.
Foreign demand, on the other hand, increased 55.1% year-on-year (YoY) and decreased 3.4% month-on-month (MoM) to 95.6 billion yen.
JMTBA is scheduled to release its confirmed figures for November on December 23.
