WASTEC Market Statistics Programs
WASTEC offers its members the ability to participate in the following industry statistics programs (Program overview | Market statistics committee organizational chart).
WASTEC Market Activity Index/Market Trends Index
The WASTEC Industry Market and Production Survey (IMPS) tracks business trends every quarter. The IMPS provides 23 key benchmarks for manufacturing and distribution activities. The reports contain useful information for companies interested in market trends in the waste and recycling industry. This report trends on twenty-one questions broken up into six broad areas:
- Domestic Sales
- Export Sales
- Orders Activity
- Inventory Activity
- Price Activity and Productivity
The data is further segmented by manufacturers and by consultants/distributors/service providers (non-manufacturers). The IMPS is modeled after the nationally recognized Purchasing Managers’ Index. It tracks sales trends and measures them against projections for both domestic and international markets. It provides a quick comparison of your company’s position against the industry.
WASTEC Manufacturer Sales Data
The Manufacturer Sales Data (MDS) Program consists of manufacturers reporting production and sales data in specific product categories. Depending on the product, this monthly/quarterly report covers invoiced shipments from production facilities, regardless of place of origin. Shipped product is reported by regional destination in the North American Domestic (NAD) market which includes the United States (broken out by five Regions: Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, West and Pacific), Canada and Mexico, and Exports to all other areas from production facilities in the NAD area.
This report is produced and distributed only to those members that report data. Data issued will serve as a tool in keeping track of the past performance and the current strength of your market.
