The IAPD Research and Marketing Committee needs your input for the Manufacturers’ Market Sizing Study 

This study provides our manufacturer members with the total market size of products or products in North America and the percentage share of the total in that geographical area. This information is intended to help with decisions about capacity investments, personnel needs and the effectiveness of the sales or distribution channel.

The confidentiality of the information provided will be strictly maintained by Marr and Company, P.C., a third-party accounting firm. No IAPD staff, board member or volunteer will see the information submitted. Confidentiality is further maintained by not reporting the results until we have majority participation in a product line and it is only reported in aggregate amounts. Marr and Company has provided a letter of confidentiality and contact information. Read here.

Reporting

This year participants are asked to report 2008, 2009 and 2010 data. If you submitted data in 2008, we ask that you please provide your 2008 data again since some product categories have been revised. The survey asks for only a few data points on the attached Excel spreadsheet. The value of this survey increases as trending information is collected over the years. There are two tabs on the spreadsheet, one for ROD, SHEET, TUBE & FILM and another for PIPE, VALVES & FITTINGS.

The information gathered from this survey is a valuable resource for member companies and the association. Take a moment to read the testimonials from companies that participated in the first Market Data Survey.

More participation increases the value of this data. Please take a moment to complete the survey and thank you in advance for your consideration and support of IAPD.

Please return your data to Marr & Company, P.C. at survey@marrandcompany.com.
