Our report delves deep into the US Pumping equipment industry and compares its financial performance with that of Graco Inc, using market data privy only to our industry report customers
Irvine, CA (Vocus) May 13, 2010
Supplier Relations US, a leading market research firm, publishes its latest company report on Graco Inc and the US Pump and Pumping Equipment industry. Graco Inc is a US based company and one of the world leaders in this industry of managing fluids, thus its results are a strong indicator of the industry's overall performance.
This latest report comes on the heels of a recovery in the industry and the company's performance, after the industry as a whole took a hit due to the 2009 recession. After suffering a near 30% ($238M USD) sales decline in 2009, Graco experienced a 19% growth in sales in the first quarter of 2010 compared to the same period last year, and a 13% sales growth compared to the previous quarter.
This company report differentiates itself from the standard offerings by leveraging the firm's market research expertise in US manufacturing sectors. Since Graco Inc's Industrial Segment accounted for more than 50% of its revenues, it made sense to benchmark the company against the industry where that particular segment resided. "Our report delves deep into the US Pumping equipment industry and compares its financial performance with that of Graco Inc, using market data privy only to our industry report customers" asserts Jacqueline Smith, one of the firm's analysts. "These benchmarks reveal that Graco Inc's sales follows the industry trends, but at larger highs and lows."
Further analysis of Graco Inc's first quarter results revealed two consistent trends seen in the industry. The first one being signs of economic upswing; whereas US export numbers for the industry in 2009 were down almost 8.5%, Supplier Relations US forecasted growth in 2010 that is reflected in the company's results. The second one, a more subtle observation, is the gradual shift of Graco Inc's sales coming from markets outside of the US, where more than half of the Q1 growth was attributed to sales increases in Asia Pacific.
"Our company report contains detailed industry data not found anywhere else and we encourage experts to look into our data and draw their own conclusions" suggests Smith. "To make it more convenient, we provide in addition to the report all key data in Excel format for our readers' own calculations."
