The 2011 Scope of the LBM Industry Report focuses on statistical trends and includes comparisons to estimate from the first edition from 2009. The report explains why building material dealers operate the way they do and how they have evolved in response to the marketplace, noting valuable benchmarking data for all members of the building industry.
With this report, dealers are able to conduct benchmarking for their businesses and suppliers are able to obtain key industry metrics influencing business decisions. Further, this information is critical to the advocacy work done by NLBMDA and its affiliated state and regional associations. This data gives a clear picture of our industry and its economic impact.
