The "2016 Big Dealer Report" is a joint project of Ag Equipment Intelligence and the Machinery Advisory Consortium. This unique report tracks the dynamic changes taking place with farm equipment dealer ownership in the U.S. and Canada. Along with a review of major dealer merger and acquisitions during the prior year, the 'Big Dealer' Report also provides a complete listing of North American's largest dealers, along with commentary on emerging distribution trends in the equipment industry. For the purposes of this report, "Big Dealers" are considered those organizations that own and operate five or more farm equipment store locations throughout North America. This report was initiated in 2009 and is updated annually in April.
Based on surveys from more than 300 North American dealers, not only does the 2016 Dealer Business Outlook & Trends forecast report give you a "from the trenches" look at what dealers see for equipment sales in the year ahead, but it also identifies trends for individual product sales growth. In 48 pages, the report breaks out the dealers' 2016 outlook by country, by region, by the equipment brand and by the size of their dealership. Learn more.
