September 2, 2011

The Fall 2011 National Auto Glass Specifications International (NAGS) Benchmark Calculator goes into effect in just ten days on September 12. glassBYTEs.com™/AGRR™ magazine analyzed the top 20 most popular part numbers (as reported by NAGS) and found that the benchmark prices for 18 of 20 parts have risen since the Fall 2010 calculator. Likewise, only two of the twenty have seen drops in benchmark since the Fall 2010 release.

One part, the DW01176GBNN, has seen several major increases over the last year and a half. It rose 6.8 percent from the Fall 2010 Calculator—from a benchmark price of $199.15 to $212.75. Likewise, the 2011 Spring Calculator saw a 9.7 percent increase for the same part-from $192.25 in Spring 2010 to $210.85 in Spring 2011.

Only two parts saw benchmark decreases from last Fall's calculator—the DW01551GBYN, with a 0.9 percent drop, and the DW01265GBNN, with a 1.6 drop.
