End-user trends

White paper on trends in end-user markets


The EMEA Power Transmission Distributors Association (EPTDA), premier platform for qualified distributors and manufacturers in the mechanical power transmission and motion control (PT/MC) industry, just released a white paper on trends in sector-related end-user markets.

Pan-European industrial challenges and opportunities were discussed at the EPTDA All Committees’ Days meetings organised in Brussels this year. The EPTDA distributor members, responsible since 1998 for promoting and developing best industrial practices and continuing education, shared their market experience and identified major trends in the end-user industries as an exclusive resource for PT/MC professionals. Gathering unique insights from those leading distributors, the outcome of the discussions has been collated in a white paper giving a clearer picture of the trends in the PT/MC end-users markets and their specific needs and expectations with regard to industrial distribution.

Changes in the customer habits and technological evolution are aspects that industrial distributors, along with their manufacturing partners, can no longer ignore. The white paper is available on the public website of EPTDA - click here.
