understanding growth
Understanding Growth
  • Measurement
    • Reference point
    • Managerial tool
    • Motivational tool
    • Communication vehicle
  • Which Measurement?
    • Market Share
what is market share8
What Is Market Share?
  • Ratio
    • “Our Volume”/“Total Market Volume”
    • Usually expressed as a percent (e.g., “Johnson Sheet Metal has 40% of the duct market in East Timbuktu, North Dakota)
  • Volume basis
    • Dollars
    • Units (heads, pounds of metal installed)
important considerations for calculating market share
Important Considerations for Calculating Market Share
  • Defining the components
    • Numerator
      • What units should be used to define “our volume?”
      • Example: should we consider fabrication employees as well as installation employees?
    • Denominator
      • How do you define “Total Market Volume?”
      • Impact of how “Total Market Volume” is defined
        • Major influence on overall “market share” number
        • Can drive perception of results internally and externally
other considerations
Other Considerations
  • Proposed use of the data
  • Complexity vs. Cost
  • Precision vs. Accuracy
  • Absolute vs. Trend
  • Repeatability
method i

Method I

FMI Duct Market Opportunity Index

  • Estimate of Market Size Opportunity at the local level
  • Provide a quantitative assessment of local market success in accessing opportunities
  • Develop trends in the opportunity index
  • Three successive iterations of the model have yielded increasing refinements
    • May 1998, Duct Fabrication Survey
    • May 1999, Duct Fabrication Survey Update
    • May 2000, Best Practices Task Force
  • Trend data available, 1992 to 1999
  • Econometric forecasting and modeling, 2000 to 2005

3. HVAC Duct

Installed Value

key definitions
Key Definitions
  • Constant Dollars — 1992 dollars without inflation are used to maintain year-to-year index consistency.
  • Put-in-Place Construction — The total value paid by the building owner (in constant dollars).
  • HVAC Duct Installed Value — The portion of Put-in-Place Construction represented by HVAC duct work including labor, overhead, and profit, and excluding HVAC equipment.
  • Local Duct Opportunity — HVAC Duct Installed Value adjusted down by the local market value of flex duct and ductboard.
  • Tons of Steel — Estimated tons of steel indicated by the Local Duct Opportunity. This is used by FMI to validate findings against available industry benchmarks.
interpretive guidelines
Interpretive Guidelines
  • The Index is based on privately owned construction only.
  • Residential construction is not included.
  • Anomalies in reported hours have been smoothed.
  • Hourly data is not adjusted for non-duct work (e.g., architectural metal).
  • Put-in-Place Construction is based on the local market trading area (MSA). Local data does not sum to regional data due to market coverage.
  • The Opportunity Index estimates hours per thousand dollars of opportunity. This is not market share.

Method II

Best Practices Presentation/”Headcount” Method

establishing market trends
Establishing Market Trends
  • Determine local’s construction membership
    • Building Trades, Roofing, Residential
    • Journeymen, Apprentices Members, Apprentices
  • Determine total construction employment
    • Department of Labor database of all state unemployment contributions by specific business type matched to local jurisdiction, county by county
total construction employment versus local x membership
Construction Employment



8.8% increase



39.1% increase

Building Trades Membership



31.5% decrease



19.4% increase

Total Construction Employment Versus Local X Membership
establishing union density
Establishing Union Density
  • Density is the percentage of workers in a union
  • Union members
    • Building Trades, Roofing, Residential
    • Journeymen, Apprentice Members, Apprentices
  • Sheet metal workers
    • What percentage of workers in construction perform sheet metal work?
  • Growth is vital
  • Managing growth demands measurement
  • Market share is a very basic component of measuring growth
  • Market share measurement can be a managerial tool, a motivational tool, and a communications tool
  • Go ahead and start measuring market share…but do it collaboratively!
