BFPA Surveys & Forecasts
For over 30 years the BFPA has been collecting statistical market data from the hydraulic and pneumatic industries. To buy a service with a pedigree such as this in the private market would in most cases cost more than the annual membership fee, and this is just one of many benefits available to members. Confidentiality is the prime consideration when collating this sensitive information as such the results of most surveys is only available to contributing members, and never to outside organisations.
Fluid Power Forecasts
Each autumn, BFPA in conjunction with Oxford Economics, produces a five year forecast for the UK fluid power industry for members. The forecast includes end user sector reviews and up-to-date summaries of the EU and ROW economies. Members subscribing to this service also receive monthly economic updates throughout the next year.
Global Fluid Power Statistics
BFPA is a member of CETOP, the European Trade Federation for national fluid power associations, and participates in the exchange of top-level data with other CETOP members, and in turn, CETOP exchanges data with other countries through the International Statistics Committee (ISC). BFPA and BFPDA members therefore have access to global fluid power market information – the latest figures can be downloaded from the members only pages of the BFPA website.
Official Statistics for UK Fluid Power
BFPA monitors and collates the official codes and statistical output for the hydraulic and pneumatics industries, including UK production sales (ProdCom – Office for National Statistics) and the UK trade statistics (HM Revenue & Customs) – the latest figures can be downloaded from the members only pages of the BFPA website.
Members receive information about the latest available fluid power statistics and news through our monthly BFPA newsletter.
