Japan Machinery Orders  1987-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar | Forecast

Japan's core machinery orders, which exclude those of ships and electrical equipment, decreased by 5.1 percent month-over-month in November 2016, following a 4.1 percent rise in October and worse than market expectations of a 1.7 percent fall. It was the largest decline since April last year, as orders for non-manufacturing dropped by 9.4 percent (+4.6 percent in October), dragged by lower orders for wholesale and retail trade (-16 percent), transportation and postal services (-12.5 percent) and information services (-10.3 percent). Meanwhile, orders for manufacturing jumped 9.8 percent, the first rise in four months, mainly boosted by non-ferrous metals (+339 percent) and general-purpose and production machinery (+5.1 percent). Compared with a year earlier, core orders rose by 10.4 percent, versus expectations of an 8.1 percent gain. Machinery Orders in Japan averaged 0.28 percent from 1987 until 2016, reaching an all time high of 25.50 percent in October of 1996 and a record low of -16.40 percent in May of 2014.
