The Scope of DMCs

Each year, ADME surveys its members to capture information about DMC activity. Here are some of the highlights from the 2006 survey:
  • Total Annual Spending by all ADME members is $355,788,866.11
  • Total programs completed by DMCs: 21,065
  • Average number of programs annually per company: 128

In the past year, 88% of ADME members increased their volume of business compared to the previous year.

Not unsurprisingly, the average lead time ranged from 74 days for a U.S. corporation to 220 days for an association. International corporations had a lead time of 94 days and incentive houses an average lead time of 123 days.

The average group revenue showed little difference between a small and medium size group with a significant increase for a large group:

  • Small group average revenue - $24,352.31
  • Medium group average revenue - $31,310.00
  • Large group average revenue - $82,600.36

We'll share more of the survey results in an upcoming post. How does your DMC compare?

These numbers are quite similar to the ones in Europe. It would be nice to know what % of those numbers is gross profit.... Anyone?
