The future is looking bright
The latest survey by the Shop and Display Equipment Association (SDEA) reveals that its members’ sales are on the up, with 54.2 per cent of respondents registering an increase in sales over the last six months, compared with the same period the previous year.
A further 33.3 percent reported that sales had remained level. Asked to quantify the growth in sales, the companies reported increases averaging 22.6 percent.
Favourable results were also forecast for the next twelve months with 70.8 percent of those surveyed expecting sales to increase and a further 20.8 percent anticipating maintaining similar sales levels. The average growth in sales is expected to be 23.8 percent.
SDEA director, Lawrence Cutler commented: “These are very encouraging figures as our survey indicates a renewed energy within the shopfitting and display market, which has been building for some time. It is a testimony to the tenacity of established retail display suppliers who have shown again and again that investment in retail interiors can bring an immediate payback”.
