While many are alarmed by the current geopolitical climate, this international tension comes with a silver lining for owners of roll forming machines. Increased spending in aerospace & defense has led to huge growth in demand for square and rectangular tubing, among other fabricated parts. Industrial supply company Thomasnet reports an 83% increase in sourcing for this tubing vs historical averages. This boost in sales is bolstered not just by defense spending, but also by high demand in industrial supplies manufacturing and energy and utilities.

2017 represented a year of record growth for the aerospace & defense industry, and 2018 so far seems to be following suit. Increasing competition between oil & gas companies and alternative energy sources has also been a great boon, as both fields make extensive use of square and rectangular tubing. The tubing is also used heavily in automotive and medical equipment, both of which are expected to continue a pattern steady growth amidst a healthy economy.
