Melting down: Increasing import penetration will continue to hinder industry growth

The Canadian Metalworking Machinery Manufacturing industry produces industrial moulds, metal-cutting machine tools and metal-forming machine tools. Metalworking machinery represents a key capital investment for many downstream manufacturing industries. With several of these industries experiencing a period of strong growth, particularly the automotive sector, demand for industry products has grown over the five years to 2018. Trade is vital to this industry, with its importance continuing to grow. Import competition poses a consistent threat to industry operators. The nature of the global economy has caused structural shifts across many manufacturing industries, which will likely continue to pose a challenge to industry more.

As imports continue to increase as a share of domestic demand, newcomers would be hard-pressed to compete on the basis of price. Further, the industry's reliance on currency valuations and commodity prices, both of which have been very volatile historically, signal difficult operating conditions for potential entrants.
