AVIXA’s Pro AV Business Index reports that AV sales growth increased in February. The AV Sales Index (AVI-S) reading of 55.9 is a clear indicator of growth, although lower than typical pre-pandemic numbers and also lower than the pandemic recovery high-water mark of 57.2 that was recorded in December.
Though not as strong as it could be, the 55.9 mark is clearly good news, according to Installation sister magazine Systems Contractor News (SCN). “After the higher growth of December and the tepid growth of January, it was an open question how strong the AV recovery is,” it states. “No, February’s result doesn’t signal a gangbuster bounce back, but it points strongly in the right direction.”
Vaccine proliferation in pro AV’s leading countries such as the US and UK has resulted in extremely encouraging stats, says SCN – citing the 80 percent drop in the daily death rate in the UK and 67 percent drop in hospitalisation rates in the United States.
