That’s right, NFPA is excited to announce that this once fee-based forecast service, with monthly forecasts supplied by Alan Beaulieu and the Institute for Trend Research (ITR), is now free of charge and available to all NFPA members. 

The monthly NFPA Forecast Report: U.S. Customer Markets includes forecasts of 31 customer markets, plus a forecast for the fluid power industry.  These forecasts will predict market and industry growth for the current year, plus the subsequent four years.  An additional report with a more detailed look at seven customer markets and seven economic indicators considered to have the strongest connection to fluid power is also included.

As an NFPA member, you will now have exclusive and continuous year-round access to the latest ITR predictions.
