FIA Orders & Shipments Survey (by MTInsight)

FIA’s Orders & Shipments Survey program was re-launched in 2019 as a web-based high-end survey product. The survey’s scope is confidentially tracking FIA member North American shipments and bookings for forged products inclusive of the Impression Die, Open Die and Rolled Ring processes.


About the FIA O&S Survey:

  • FIA partnered with MTInsight, the statistical tracking division of The Association for Manufacturing Technology (AMT), to build a custom analytics program to serve the forging industry.
  • FIA members enter their monthly orders & shipments data into AMT's custom-built, confidential software system.
  • Categories tracked include OPEN DIE, CLOSED DIE and ROLLED RING forging as well as markets served, and material used.
  • Survey takes 30-minutes or less to complete each month
  • Included reports:
    • Monthly Index Overview
    • Market Share Report (Dollars)
    • Product Report (Index Values)
    • Profile Report
  • As first step members complete their full 2016 sales (in Excel), then gain access to the program for monthly data loading
  • This is a members-only benefit.
