According to the EU’s brainy number-crunchers at Eurostat, much of this enthusiasm for powerful and precise machine tools comes from a healthy percentage of the Hungarian economy’s reliance on high-and-medium-high technology manufacturing and knowledge-intensive service sectors that depend on the excellent performance top-quality machines.  In 2017, a whopping 9.8% of the total employment in Hungary was tied directly to these sectors.  Moreover, with manufacturing having the highest multiplier effect, consumer demand’s generated for more durable goods, which stimulates further economic activity, manufacturing and sales.

A direct peek at the percentage of value added per sector as part of GDP year-on-year (as posted by the Hungarian Central Statistical Office) shows that by the second quarter of 2018, the value added in GDP thanks to manufacturing had risen by 4.0%. And, buoyed by the substantial 7.7% growth in value added as part of GDP in wholesale/retail/accommodation/food services, this indicates manufacturing is on the right path.  Manufacturing will increase to meet this fast-growing demand in goods and services.
