Two methodologies were used in the development of this information. First, major suppliers were interviewed and contacted for the purpose of this analysis. A questionnaire, which summarizes all of the desired information, was developed and sent to all of the suppliers. Of the companies contacted, all responded directly to the survey questionnaire. In addition to the interviews, a comprehensive literature review, including company financial reports, was conducted. All of this information was analyzed and the findings are outlined in this report.
