Gear Technology’s annual State-of-the-Gear-Industry survey polls gear manufacturers about the latest trends and opinions relating to the overall health of the gear industry. As in years past, the survey was conducted anonymously, with invitations sent by email to our subscribers, AGMA members, and others in the gear industry. Primarily, our responses come from North America, but they also include responses from around the world. Nearly 200 individuals responded to the survey.
As we embark on a new year, let’s review the current state of the gear industry, and how the changes of the past several years will shape our path forward. The insights garnered from Gear Technology’s annual survey offer a glimpse into the collective mindset of professionals in the field and help us understand how to plan for an ever-changing future.
