Shipment Recover to Start the Year (May 20, 2024)

In contrast with the contraction in the second half of 2023, unit shipments in the first quarter of 2024 increased by nearly 10% (+119 units) while the aggregate value of these machines increased by more 16% from Q4, bringing this measure of market value to within 4% of the peak achieved in Q2 2023. We have often pointed out that quarterly data are somewhat erratic and cannot be relied on to measure market trends except over several quarterly reports. It now appears that the order of magnitude of the down cycle may be shorter and less severe. But we continue to anticipate market weakness in 2024 and our evaluation of other measures of market activities reinforce this assessment. But the degree to which Q1 shipments bounced back warrants substantial caution.
