HOLLYWOOD, FL -- Manufacturers of store fixtures, point-of-purchase displays and other retail merchandising products participating in the Association of Retail Environments Industry Revenue Trends Survey reported median growth of 9.5% in 2010.

What's more, the same 94 companies project growth of 10% in 2011.

Digging deeper, the A.R.E.'s September survey found that 66% of respondents did not feel their firm's sales levels would be back to 2007 levels until 2012 or later. Seventeen percent indicated they were at 2007 or better this year and another 18% said they expect to get there next year.
