2017 Fabricator Market Forcast 2017 shows promising signs While fabricators overall have a positive perspective for the upcoming year, it appears they are a little more cautious than their predictions for 2016, according toStone World’sannual purchasing plan survey conducted by the Market Research Department at BNP Media (Stone World’s parent company). The survey polled fabricators from small-, medium- and large-sized shops located across the U.S., and three-quarters of the respondents have high hopes for 2017 — with sales revenues expected to grow next year by an average of 17%.
