SDEA survey reveals positive outlook

According to the latest survey by the Shop and Display Equipment Association (SDEA), its members’ sales are increasing. 

The association has revealed that 54.2 per cent of respondents registered a rise in sales over the last six months compared with the same period a year earlier. A further 33.3 per cent reported that sales had remained level.

Asked to quantify the growth in sales, the companies surveyed reported increases averaging 22.6 per cent.

Favourable results were also forecast for the next 12 months, with 70.8 per cent of respondents expecting sales to increase and a further 20.8 per cent anticipating maintaining similar sales levels.  The average growth in sales is expected to be 23.8 per cent.

SDEA director Lawrence Cutler said: “These are very encouraging figures.  Our survey indicates a renewed energy within the shopfittings 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”.
