NACS State of the Industry Survey

Data Submission Is Now Open for NACS State of the Industry of 2020 Data (SOI) Survey

Retailers—and the entire industry—use SOI data to compare their financial and key category performance against the aggregate benchmarks to aid in making data-driven decisions and improve the profitability of their businesses. This year, understanding industry scenarios, gaps, strengths and opportunities is more valuable than ever! In late spring, NACS will deliver industry performance data about a critical year to help retailers understand, reset and navigate the post-pandemic marketplace. For the first time, the report will feature newly available shopper insights from our Convenience VoicesTM panel, as well as performance metrics across each of the six NACS regions.

Primary Survey

The NACS State of the Industry Report® of 2020 Data reports the best available industry information that your company needs to stay competitive and progress to top-performer status. With increasing competition from non-traditional fuel marketers and increased pressure from adjacent channels, traditional c-stores and fuel marketers need more actionable, targeted performance data. Insightful and actionable benchmark information is the only way to design effective strategies to grow market share and profits. Report information is based on the income statement, balance sheet and productivity data provided by convenience store companies across the country, as well as other relevant data sources.
