The supply side shows a strong, positive outlook for 2018 and beyond, with large improvements over last quarter’s mark due to the rise in business investment at the beginning of 2017.

Staff investment is one way that businesses and organisations are contributing to the rising strength of the Industry. A number of leading brands within the sign industry have made such investments.
