The MHEDA Journal - Second Quarter, 2016 - (Page 32)

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, last year we introduced 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 despite the volatility in the stock market, only 25% of respondents have changed their projection for 2016 since the 1st Quarter issue. Growth areas and drivers include: Rental and service opportunities What are the trends driving growth in your region or company?
