March 2017

This month’s analysis brings stunning results with one exception: The number of participants has
dropped further to 47 which is a ratio of 11.5%. This data comes from a vast minority of
members; it is a weak base of data and does not portray a realistic development of the industry.
We know that the good results come from the 47 participants but we do not know about the
situation of the other 362 members who have not sent their answers. In order to obtain more
reliable results we need more members to participate.

Now to the recent figures. The EuRA Index has raised to 125.5.
