Current Industry PE: Investors are relatively neutral on the industry at the moment, considering it's trading close to its 3-year average PE ratio of 10.4x. It appears they believe that earnings will grow in-line with historical growth rates.

This means that less sales are being generated overall, but since the cost of doing business is lower, profits have been increasing.
