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.
In addition to taking the pulse of market conditions in December, his month’s survey asks dealers what they think the biggest trends in boating will be this year.
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.
