Market Information Programs by Member Type: Service Supplier

A common market information question asked by NFPA members, as it relates to their membership benefits, is “What reports are available to my company?”  While dependent on your membership type, i.e. manufacturer, distributor, product supplier, etc., NFPA’s market information programs are broken into two types, participation-based and non-participation-based programs.

Now while SERVICE SUPPLIERS do not currently have a participation-based program associated to their member type, they are offered limited access to summary reports of participation-based market programs.  Below is a list of NFPA market information programs available to SERVICE SUPPLIERS, along with a short description.

To access our market information program menu, a general listing and access to all of NFPA’s market information reports, please click one of the links below.
