The Trend Data Survey (TDS) is the EPTDA's very own barometer to drive well-informed business decisions and strategy in a constantly changing market environment.
Launched in 2009 on the initiative of the Know Your Market Committee, the EPTDA Trend Data Survey has proved successful, as reflected in the ever-rising participation rate and growing interest of members to participate actively. It has now become a valuable tool that members can implement in their own business, and access for free.
The TDS in its current format focuses on four carefully selected key indicators – sales, gross margin, employment and inventory. Nevertheless, the Know Your Market Committee devotes particular attention to constantly improving the survey and adapting it to changing expectations. The results released to members also include country reports.
In order to make these reports even more accurate and comprehensive, EPTDA strongly encourages ALL its Members to contribute, and benefit from reliable information, in addition to being rewarded for their participation.
