Market researchers are predicting a robust year for sales of landscaping equipment to government entities.
Onvia, a Seattle-based company that provides businesses with information to help them secure government contracts, counts at least $109 million in leads for planned government purchases of mowers, grounds-maintenance equipment, utility vehicles and related machines for 2015. The firm says 2016 purchases should total at least $97 million.
According to Onvia market analyst Lyndon Dacuan, the pace of cooperative purchasing activity through associations, such as National Joint Powers Alliance, is increasing in the second half of 2015. Dacuan told American City and County that the practice of leveraging contracts is becoming more prevalent in the government marketplace throughout the country.
Onvia has issued a whitepaper highlighting this trend.
