SPI’s statistics program is one of the most highly valued services provided to equipment manufacturers. Currently, over 80 equipment manufacturers are members of the SPI Committee on Equipment Statistics (CES). Reporting into this program are suppliers of:
These reports capture a substantial percentage of the entire North American market in each reporting category.
Participating companies are responsible for submitting their monthly new orders and shipments in units and values to Veris Consulting, a third-party fiduciary, via the SPI CES website. Neither CES members nor SPI staff have access to individual company data. Only the fiduciary staff assigned to the CES program is permitted to see individual company data. In order to eliminate the potential of violating anti-trust laws, disclosure rules have been set requiring that at least three companies report in each category and that no one company can have a greater than 65% market share in a category each reporting period. The fiduciary posts reports on the SPI CES website, typically within 2-3 weeks after the end of each reporting period. Email notifications are sent to the company data reporters when the reports are posted.
Only companies that participate and report into the program have access to the reports.
In addition to the monthly reports, CES publishes a quarterly Cross Sector Analysis (CSA) that correlates CES data with general macroeconomic data. The CSA is provided to CES members at no charge.
CES recently decided to reinstate releasing quarterly media reports. Please see below for a list of the recent releases.
If CES is something you and your company are interested in please contact Katie Masterson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-974-5296.
