In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we are providing FEA members the opportunity to sign-up to a 16 week FEASTATS Forward Order Book programme. The objective is to give members a measure of the into the short-term affects on the overall market. Forward order statistics are a trusted proven indicator and provide a real-time report of the market trends.

 Forward order numbers will be collected from participating members on weekly basis from 6th April, for a period of 16 weeks.


FEASTATS measures market trends by analysing forward order statistics. Forward order statistics are a proven indicator and provide real-time report of market trends. Once compiled, the report is only shared with fellow contributing companies.

The FEASTATS Scheme is designed to provide participating members with an indication of

  • the total market size and
  • the participants’ market share relevant to those products with which the participant is associated.

It is run by participating members purely for the benefit of its members on a confidential basis. The costs are borne by the participants on a non-profit making basis.

What are the benefits of contributing to FEASTATS?

FEASTATS measures market trends based on Forward Order Book data; only indices are published, we do not publish any absolute cash figures. Once compiled the report is shared with fellow contributing companies only.

The aggregation of members’ monthly or quarterly figures provides participants with current month/quarter, previous month/quarter, year to date and moving annual totals of units (sometimes value).
