Every January, Stone World reports the statistics found in a purchasing plan survey conducted by the Clear Seas Research Department at BNP Media (Stone World’s parent company), and the results for 2019 are encouraging. The survey polled fabricators from diverse-sized shops based throughout the U.S. This year, fabricators seem even more optimistic than last year, with 82% anticipating an increase in their current sales – a spike of 7% over 2018.
While the majority of participants have high hopes for the coming year, another 12% said the market would remain status quo and 6% are bracing for a drop in sales revenue. The mean average of 26% growth is a 7% increase from last year’s results.
