The MHEDA Journal - Second Quarter, 2015 - (Page 30)
INDUSTry PUlSE: 2
For years, The MHEDA Journal has done forecasting in the 1st Quarter Issue of the magazine.
It's one of the most popular features in the magazine. However, over the course of the year,
things change and trends emerge. We decided that it didn't make sense to only forecast once
per year. So with that in mind, we are debuting a new feature called the "Industry Pulse" where
we talk to MHEDA members and Board Members each quarter to get a status update on the
industry. What has changed and what has remained the same?
We found that since the 1st Quarter, nearly 60% of respondents
have actually changed their projection for 2015.
Why? A myriad of issues such as:
Plunging gas prices
What are the trends driving growth
in your region or company?
