Decrease in SLED Opportunities

The SLED market saw a decrease of -3.7% in opportunities in Q1 2024. This aligns with the cyclical pattern of previous declines that often follow periods of stronger performance.


A forecast of 467K SLED bids and RFPs for 2024 would still show solid growth over 2021 at 6.1% and supports the hypotheses that 2022 and 2023 were natural overperforming 'catch-up years'.
