The CPA’s ‘Installer Barometer’ polled over 12,000 installers with a series of questions about how 2013 is comparing with 2012; as well as assessing confidence going forward. 18 JAN 2014 The results were positive – with headline numbers revealing that 54.10 per cent of installers had seen an increasing number of leads this year; with 29.51 per cent reporting that average order values were up. The barometer also mirrored the CBI’s predictions about an upswing in 2014 – with 62.50 per cent of installers saying they expected sales to increase and 55.36 per cent expecting profits to increase. An overwhelming majority – 54.90 per cent – also said they believed growth would increase across the industry and 56 per cent expect the UK economy to improve. Jeremy Brett, CPA Director, comments: “The report found that installers are optimistic about their own businesses. Crucially, it also showed increasing confidence about the UK economy and conditions going forward – which chimes with the CBI report.
