Burton-Taylor’s annual sentiment survey shows record levels of optimism in some areas for 2018 with slight contractions next year. Max Bowie reports on the trends reported by survey respondents.
Respondents predict industry growth in the region of 1.8 percent, compared to 1.4 percent for last year in the 2017 survey, and are forecasting growth of 1.5 percent for 2019. Usually, survey respondents display less optimism about current year predictions, and are more bullish about future years, says Douglas B. Taylor, managing director of Burton-Taylor International Consulting, adding that there is no obvious reason for the drop in optimism for next year.
