Mission 4 Markets Survey Results

Mission 4 Markets Survey Results

The third Mission for Markets survey, collected by NABMA and the NMTF has been published.

CEO of NABMA, Graham Wilson highlighted some of the findings of the survey including:

  • 77% of market traders have confidence in the longevity of their businesses showing that markets are coping well with the retail downturn.
  • 70% of market traders over 50 years of age. NABMA /NMTF Survey highlights the need to recruit more young people into the industry.
  • Markets Survey shows over 70% of markets not registered for VAT which adds importance to NABMA’s campaign to challenge Treasury and HMRC.
  • Results of NABMA/NMTF National Markets Survey shows national average occupancy rate in markets is 77% which is consistent with the position in the 2016 survey. Markets are therefore holding their own in declining High Street.
