Quarterly Index of A/E/C reprographer sales revenues from "plans printed on paper" (Q3 2011 update)

This is the 3rd Quarter 2011 update to the index of the U.S.A. A/E/C reprographics industry's sales revenues of "plans-printed-on-paper".

The A/E/C Repro PPoP Index .....

This index does not attempt to track "total sales" of A/E/C reprographers. It attempts to track only sales of "plans printed on paper," which, traditionally and even nowadays, is the core (main) revenue generator for all A/E/C reprographers.

And, by "plans printed on paper", I mean A/E/C "plans", large-format, b/w and color, unbound or bound, full-size, half-size, whatever large-format size.

There will be a recovery in the A/E/C industry and thereby in the A/E/C reprographics industry. However, some are saying that even though there will be a recovery in the A/E/C industry, the recovery of sales revenues from "plans printed on paper" may not mirror the A/E/C industry's recovery, since some are expecting (I guess I should say, some are saying) that revenues from printing plans on paper are being negatively impacted by customers distributing CD's (or files) instead of distributing "hard copy" plans.

For this index, Q1 2006 is the ground-zero (base) point.

YR-- 2006-----2007-----2008----- 2009-----2010------2011

Q1-- 1.00-------1.09-------1.10------0.65------0.55-----0.65

Q2-- 1.06-------1.18-------0.98------0.65------0.60…….0.61

Q3-- 1.08-------0.97-------0.85------0.57------0.60…….0.62

Q4-- 0.89-------0.93-------0.64------0.49------0.58

A NOTE OF CAUTION TO PEOPLE WHO'VE BEEN FOLLOWING THIS INDEX! The “index” calculations for periods after Q3 2010 have been slightly adjusted to take into account the effects of an acquisition completed by one of the industry’s supplier/vendors. KEEP THAT IN MIND WHEN YOU "PONDER" THE INDEX NUMBERS.

(This index is based on A/E/C Repro Vendor sales to A/E/C Reprographers)
