Customer Market Survey: Evaluate Industry Sales by Customer Market

Published On May 24, 2017 | By Eric Armstrong | Market Reports

NFPA is currently collecting 2016 U.S. hydraulic and pneumatic sales figures from manufacturer members for the Customer Market Survey (CMS) as part of a continued effort to create a more complete information source about fluid power customer markets. The survey results, displayed in both dollar and percentage, will allow participants to properly measure industry sales by customer market. This type of industry intelligence expands your understanding of the role each customer segment plays in the marketplace and can help identify emerging markets to investigate. We encourage our manufacturer members to participate. The survey results are only available to members who contribute data to the survey.

The deadline to complete this survey is Tuesday, May 30th. The person most familiar with your company’s sales of fluid power products should be asked to complete this online survey and can have a survey link and information sent directly to them by contacting Eric Armstrong at or (414) 778-3372.

Great care is taken to maintain confidentiality of individual company data. We have partnered with The Dieringer Research Group, an independent market research firm, to conduct the survey and data aggregation.

We appreciate the time and effort our members devote to the completion of this survey.  The entire industry will benefit as a result.
