The fishing tackle imports indices track trends in the dollar value of fishing tackle imported into the United States. Using data provided by the U.S. International Trade Commission, the results of this index provide insights into the general status of fishing tackle sales.
Imports are driven by two factors: the trade’s expectations of future sales and the need to replenish stock already sold. The size of tackle shipments arriving in the U.S. are generally determined by the amount of inventory needing replacing and the trade’s expectations regarding upcoming sales. Therefore, the index provides insights into both of these issues combined.
The index does not report the total units imported, but instead reports the percentage change in the dollar value of all imports compared to the same quarter, previous year. The results are not adjusted for inflation.
