Industry Forecasts

Forecasts

While benchmarks measure where the industry and your company have been, forecasts provide predictive models necessary to determine where the industry is going.  The ASA Advisor© offers members guidance when developing longer term strategies that endure success.

ASA Advisor©

ASA's economic forecast is designed specifically for the PHCP and PVF industry.  The ASA Advisor© provides macro-economic analysis of the  industry at a national and regional level as well as reports on how the U.S. economy may impact the different industry segments served by ASA members.

Each month, ASA members receive an updated, rolling 36-month forecast, which is complemented by a semi-annual webinar and an annual presentation at the association's annual Network event, that will enhance their confidence and help them to reduce risk and increase profit from today's economic trends.
