Fluid Power Industry Growth Trend
The latest data published by the National Fluid Power Association shows the 12 month moving average of shipments for pneumatic, hydraulic, and total fluid power continue to grow.

Mobile hydraulic orders received from May 2021 to April 2022 are currently 129.2% of the orders received from May 2020 to April 2021. When looking at raw index data, pneumatic, mobile hydraulic, and industrial hydraulic shipments all decreased when compared to last month.
