Developed and managed in conjunction with ITR Economics, PTDA's SHOR collects member company sales data and presents the aggregate results. Released quarterly, SHOR tracks sales by quarter and forecasts growth rates going forward. Knowing the projected growth or decline of the industry helps you adjust your business plans such as marketing initiatives, resource allocation and product launches.
SHOR tracks total power transmission/motion control product sales for both distributors and manufacturers and for specific product categories for manufacturers only. SHOR then provides a trend analysis based on that data. Tables and chart representation of the data allows participants to track overall category movement (categories include bearings, motors, controls, gearing, conveyors/conveyor material handling equipment, hydraulics/pneumatics) and overall total sales movement (for both manufacturers and distributors) on a quarterly basis.
