Ankeny, IA (April 20, 2022) - The National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW), the association representing shooting sports wholesalers, manufacturers and their trade partners, and the creator of the industry leading SCOPE Data Platform, has released the 1st Quarter SCOPE Report compiling distributor sales and inventory data from January 1st, 2022 through March 31st, 2022.
“Building upon the release of our annual SCOPE report, our quarterly reports will provide a consistent ongoing update of the shooting sports distribution channel," said Kenyon Gleason, NASGW President. "The data and insight in this report is unparalleled in our industry and we are excited to put this information to work for businesses and organizations across the shooting sports industry.”
Released in February, the 2021 Annual report encompassed firearms only. The Q1 SCOPE Report has expanded to include optics and ammunition in addition to firearms, as well as NICS data as a familiar benchmark. NASGW is offering a basic, high level overview report for free and a full version that is available for purchase. Data compiled from this report is sourced directly from SCOPE DLX (distributor sales & inventory). NASGW plans to release a report for each quarter of 2022 and a year end report that combines data from the entire year.
“The release of our 2021 annual report was widely successful,” said Tom Hopper, Senior Data Analyst at NASGW. “It's clear the industry has been hungry for something like this for a long time. The data compiled across all the SCOPE platforms is very powerful and we are looking forward to sharing that with a wider audience on a regular basis.”
NASGW is proud to lead the way in this distributor lead industry initiative to provide better data for improved decision making throughout the shooting sports industry.
