Country and regional analysts

Our in-country analyst network is managed by country and regional analysts in our locations around the world. Working closely with each in-country team, the regional research management team ensures that all country researchers are well educated in best practices, from the information collected in store checks, to the dialogue we build in trade surveys. Our country analysts ensure that reports explain the data trends and provide clear insights into the local market’s dynamics.

Industry specialists

Each industry we cover is managed by an industry manager and team of industry analysts who research and report on their specialist categories.

Our collaborative approach to research means that these industry teams are in constant dialogue with industry players and opinion formers. Our research strategy reflects latest market trends and industry events. In completing each project, this provides invaluable input to the testing, review and finalization of our data.

The specialist in-house teams bring together findings from all stages of the annual research process. They work closely with in-country analysts, assess and challenge data and exercise final editorial control over the publication of new data and analysis.

In-country research network

To deliver fresh insights in countries all around the world, we believe the strongest approach is to use analysts on the ground. They bring fluency in local language, physical proximity to the best sources, an ability to engage directly with local industry contacts, and an awareness of how the products and services we study are advertised, sold and consumed. These are essential parts of our ability to report incisively on these markets.
