Top Industries With Upcoming RFPs

Altogether, we predict that around 700 companies will issue RFPs in Q3 of 2019. 

The top three industries issuing RFPs will be retailers and wholesalers, travel and leisure, and home furnishings. This is nearly identical to Q2, with retail edging out Apparel & Accessories as the most popular industry for the quarter.

The top 8 industries with at least 50 RFPs in Q3 are:

  • Retailer/Wholesale: 94
  • Travel & Leisure: 91
  • Home Furnishings: 89
  • Food: 85
  • Apparel & Accessories: 83
  • Medical/Pharmaceutical: 62
  • Technology: 54
  • Beer, Wine & Spirits: 51

For the last on the list (Beer, Wine & Spirits), Q3 is the most active quarter in 2019 for issuing RFPs.
