SM05: Cold Hard Facts 3 – Measures of Change

Michael McCann, Managing Director, ThinkWell

Cold Hard Facts 1 (2007) and Cold Hard Facts 2 (2013) were seminal works, gathering together data from across the RAC industry and, for the first time, providing a reference point for industry and policy makers to understand the full scale, extent and national economic relevance of this industry.

CHF3 will be published in early 2018, and with the benefit of the metrics from the two earlier editions, will illustrate both the continued growth and increasing relevance of the industry to the national economy, but will also provide segment by segment rates of change, revealing the impact of the main technological and regulatory drivers that are shaping the industry, and the response of the market has bought to these forces.

The underlying CHF3 stock model that has been developing since 2006 is now a tremendously sophisticated modelling tool for forecasting changes to the stock of equipment and refrigerant gas markets in Australia.
