Ballast prevents flicker
Prismatron electronic ballasts for use with metal halide luminaires offer reduced energy consumption, color stability, silent operation, and flicker-free illumination. Ballasts can continually dim lamps rather than dim them in steps. If luminaire is turned off while in a dimmed state, hold-high capability allows lamp to return to full output power when reenergized. Ballasts consume fewer watts than magnetic core or coil versions.

There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
