Dealers who want to give feedback on current market conditions and sentiment are invited to participate in a brief five-question survey with room for optional comments.
This month’s survey gives retailers the opportunity to forecast how they see the year ahead unfolding. The economy and consumer are confidence are strong, though tariffs and inflation have been a concern for some economists.
The Pulse Report — administered in conjunction with Baird Research, the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas, and Trade Only Today — analyzes industry data points such 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.
