The Gear and Speed Changer Manufacturing was rocked by a sharp decrease in 2009 as the recession took hold of the industry's downstream markets. However, this drop was mitigated by strong revenue before and after the recession, leading to a positive overall growth rate in the five years to 2014. This growth is expected to not only continue, but increase as more downstream markets recover; though an increasing value of the dollar will increase imports, possibly hampering revenue expansion.
