This article focuses on a survey to gauge the business prospects for the forging industry in the U.S. in the year 2006. The journal "Forging" asked forging industry executives in the U.S. to project the outlook for their respective companies. The tally of results from 82 companies that responded to the questionnaire indicates a very optimistic outlook. About 56.3% of the respondents are looking forward to shipping more forgings in 2006 than they did in 2005. Another 38.8% of the respondents expect next year's shipments to stay even with shipments in 2005.
