STATE OF THE CHANNEL
State of the Channel (SoC) is an annual research effort conducted by HARDI to understand the size, shape, and segments of the HVACR industry. Integrating a macro-level overview of the broader economy with a focused analysis of trends within the HVACR industry, the SoC project provides HARDI members with detailed insights into the growing threats facing wholesale distribution and the opportunities for gaining market share.
SoC culminates annually with a detailed report of HARDI’s research findings, as well as an informational webinar that broadly outlines the report’s conclusions.
SoC White Paper Series
As part of the SoC research project, HARDI will periodically release white papers that provide a more in-depth look at a specific market segment or area of interest for HARDI members. The SoC White Paper Series will primarily address the “known unknowns” of the HVACR market, which require deeper and more thoughtful analysis.
