Dealers are invited to take a five-question survey that asks about February market conditions. This month’s survey also asks which policy issues are most important this year.
The Pulse Report — administered in conjunction with Baird Research, the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas and Soundings Trade Only — analyzes such industry data points as new-boat demand, inventory levels and access to credit.
The reports also include the Marine Retail Sentiment Index, a confidence index for retailers. It provides a glimpse into how dealers feel about current and future market conditions.
The MRAA and Baird Research launched the Pulse Report in 2013. Trade Only now partners with Baird to participate in distributing the survey and reporting its results.
