Comprehensive market research

The results of marketing research provide answers to the main questions that are of interest to most Customers:
  • How promising is the market for this product?
  • What is the market size for this product now and in the future?
  • How much can a new manufacturer sell on the market?
  • What types of products are most in demand on the market?
  • Which companies will you have to compete with?
  • What is the price level for the products of the main players?
  • Who are the most significant consumers?
  • How many products does each of the main consumers buy and what quality?
  • What are the risks of entering the market?
Depending on the tasks and situation of the Customer, we conduct various types of marketing research, which differ in depth and methods.
The most detailed is full-scale marketing research, which is carried out in the case when the Customer is already a participant in this market, or has made a positive decision to enter the market.
When the Customer only evaluates the feasibility of becoming a market participant, a pre-investment marketing research is carried out, the key issue of which is to study the prospects of the market, taking into account the volume of potential sales.

Unlike B2C market research (end-consumers — individuals), when conducting marketing research of B2B markets (end-consumers — companies), it is impossible to quickly estimate market volumes through the number of residents and their sample survey.
When conducting marketing research of B2B markets, we always take into account the features of products, identify and study in detail all the key players, taking into account the accumulated experience in using special methods and sources
This allows us to provide the Customer with the most accurate information about the market as soon as possible.

As a result of all work, the Customer receives an analytical report of a predetermined content (the final content of the marketing research is formed before the start of work in the process of discussing the terms of reference).
The preliminary content of a full-scale marketing research is based on the format of the requirements of banks (Vnesheconombank, Sberbank, etc.), the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Industrial Development Fund, Rosnano and other development institutions.
