Barometer of Trade

The Barometer of Trade is an online tool for collecting monthly figures from your members and collating them into a comprehensive online report which shows the market trends across your industry.

Your members can compare their own figures with their peers and analyse the trends in the market as a whole. This allows them to see what is affecting areas of their business in order to take corrective action – and identify other opportunities which they might be able to exploit.

The Barometer of Trade provides you with an overview of the industry as a whole – with the ability to assess economic activity by region or by business sector.

Iain Wylie, CEO of the UK Garden Centre Association, says: ”The Barometer of Trade is an invaluable tool which enables us to pool knowledge across our members, assess market trends and measure economic activity across the industry. The monthly reports help members to improve their own business performance – and the information also provides hard evidence to support our case when lobbying government to make changes that will benefit our industry.”
