National Parking Association Releases 2012-2013 Parking Industry Purchasing Power Report

Decision Maker Trends, Preferences and Parking Industry Purchasing Plans

WASHINGTON, Feb. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Parking Association today released the results of its 2012-13 Parking Industry Purchasing Power report.

"This North American study conducted among NPA members analyzes preferences, purchasing plans and buying power among parking industry professionals," said NPA President Christine Banning, CAE. "The report identifies trends and changes in purchasing patterns between parking industry sectors.

Banning added, "The study highlights who the key decision makers are in parking purchasing, and what they plan to buy in 2013." The study showed that, of all NPA members responding, 85 percent are the purchasing decision makers for their organizations, and 32 percent spend between $200,000 and $10 million per year.

Key products and services on the minds of buyers in 2013 include revenue control and facilities equipment and supplies, computer hardware and software, parking enforcement and collections, consulting services, green products, business services, and managed parking services.

The survey explores past and future purchasing plans. Respondents indicated plans for the next 12 and 24 months, demonstrating plans to request proposals and make capital and maintenance purchases. The study compares findings to longitudinal data looking back to 2010 and forward into 2013.

The study also covers emerging trends in purchasing and details how industry decision makers learn about products and services.

Survey results can be found online on the NPA website at www.npapark.org/research.
