    • Opportunities– The opportunities in a tent rental industry is the wide array of events that demand tents.
    • Threats– Some of the threats that may arise are competitors in the local area or economic downturns.
  • Market Research & Industry Analysis
    • The Party Supply Rental industry rents tables, chairs, audio equipment, tents and other related supplies used to host events. Over the five years to 2017, rising disposable income and corporate profit have spurred demand for events that require supplies rented by this industry. As a result, industry revenue is expected to rise at an annualized rate of 3.7% over the five-year period, to total $5.3 billion. Despite growth in the economy, the industry struggled prior to the beginning of the period, as operators offered low prices to bring in consumers following a period of economic uncertainty. As the economy has gained momentum over the five years to 2017, industry operators have been able to somewhat expand their leasing prices, which has raised both industry revenue and profit margins. According to a survey conducted by Special Events Magazine, 42.0% of industry operators said that they planned to raise their prices in 2016, which contributes to a 1.1% increase in revenue for that year, and is expected to boost revenue an additional 2.2% in 2017.
