WSC COVID-19 Survey Results

WSC has conducted an industry-wide survey to see how the pandemic is affecting businesses and workflows.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the COVID-19 Survey, including 75% of the manufacturers. Three surveys were created targeting different areas of the water well industry (1) Manufacturers, (2) Distributors and Manufacturer Representatives, and (3) Contractors.

Some things that stood out:

  • 94% of all survey participants are following CDC Guidelines. 
  • 42% of manufacturers predict sales to be 10-20% lower over the next 30 days.
  • Manufacturers say that 70% of freight shipments have not been affected by COVID-19.
  • 83% of distributors and manufacturer representatives are currently experiencing a decrease in sales versus previous predictions.
  • 42% of water well contractors believe that sales will grow or stay the same over the next 90 days.

A few comments from the survey takers on biggest issues facing your business.

“Uncertainty of the virus creating angst in the market.” – Manufacturer

 

“No real face-to-face interaction with our customers out in the field. Inability to host customer appreciation events. Keeping our employees and customers safe during this time.” – Distributor/Manufactures Rep

 

“Licensing and training are being held up.” – Contractor

To keep our members informed of trends in our industry during this challenging time, we will be sending out this survey periodically throughout the pandemic.
