Spec Scripts that Hit in July 2022
0

Between July 1st and July 31st, we tracked 22 new feature specs hitting the market, with only 4 having some type of attachment. Surprisingly, this is only a 4.3% decrease in specs from June. June saw a monstrous uptick in specs from the rest of the year, so it looks like we’re holding steady for the summer. Still, July didn’t beat out the record high for the year but came quite close to it.

Spec Scripts that Hit in March 2022
0

March is usually the month we see the market start to defrost and kick into high gear. Instead, the month stayed on course and went out with the exact same about as February. Between March 1st and March 31st 2022, we tracked a total of 19 feature specs hitting the market. Of these specs, 5 have some type of attachment. So, we’re seeing an even split between February and March, but with the market primed, it plays like a smaller month than anticipated.

Between July 1st and July 31st, we tracked a total of 19 feature specs out. This is a decline from the specs out the previous month, but it was to be expected with many taking long-awaited vacations, coupled with the bottlenecking we’re seeing in the development chain. However, it’s not the drop-off we anticipated and is still on par with the past month’s numbers.
