The Swiss mechanical and electrical engineering industries had to contend with a severely depressed market situation throughout 2009. New orders were 25 percent down on the previous year and sales fell by 20.3 percent. Even though business stabilized in the fourth quarter of 2009, the market environment remained difficult, with activity at a low level. The various subsectors are likely to experience widely varying trends in 2010.
