NFPA generates and maintains some of the most unique and valuable industry resources available anywhere with the assistance of our dedicated members’ input, and one such resource has just begun surveying manufacturers in a continued effort to create a more complete information source about fluid power customer markets, NFPA’s Customer Market Survey.
The results of this annual survey will allow participants to properly interpret the segmentation of hydraulic and pneumatic sales by customer market in both a dollar and percentage format. Great care is taken to maintain confidentiality of individual company data as we have partnered with The Dieringer Research Group, an independent market research firm, to conduct the survey and data aggregation. We encourage our manufacturer members to participate since the survey results are only available to those members who contribute data to the survey.
Important Note: Thanks to participant feedback(!), this year’s survey has been shortened for a quicker, easier, and more stream-lined experience by dropping the “sales data split by sales channel” and only requesting sales data split by customer market.
To better understand this survey and view how the data and analysis is displayed, please click HERE for sample pages from the 2012 report.
The person most familiar with your company’s sales of fluid power products should be asked to complete this online survey and can have a survey link and information sent directly to them by contacting Eric Armstrong at firstname.lastname@example.org or (414) 778-3372.
We appreciate the time and effort our members devote to the completion of this survey. The entire fluid power industry will benefit as a result.
