Manufacturers of industrial equipment, components, and instruments have, on average, a service revenue share of 30%, which has been stable over the last two years. This has been shown by the results of TSIA's Industrial 30 index, which analyzes the quarterly reports of 30 industrial manufacturers reporting their service revenues.
We’ve found that the service revenue share was stable during five quarters of revenue growth, and it is still stable after two quarters of shrinking revenues of 7%, as compared to last year. This shows that a huge part of services in industrial equipment are product-attached. Fewer product sales mean fewer implementations, lower product utilization by customers means fewer repairs, and customers under pressure even reduces support levels. Some services, like calibration or mission-critical support, are stable.
