Construction market analysis is one of our key services to help you find out more about specific market sectors. A detailed market analysis provides a powerful tool to help you identify how to increase share in an existing market or assess the sales potential in a new market sector.

Our Approach to Analysing Construction Markets

To effectively assess a building products market or niche construction sector we would typically collect information using one or more of the following data sources:

  • Market research
  • Published statistics
  • Desk research – government data, internet, press releases, company brochures, annual reports, in-house database
  • Mystery shopping
  • Discussions with experts in the sector – trade bodies, consultants, business executives, manufacturers, contractors, distributors
  • Meetings with suppliers and customers
  • Forecasting models.

We then use a combination of this data and our expertise and knowledge of the construction and building products industry to help build up a picture of the  market. We often work with companies looking to target a new regional market in Europe for the first time, in particular the UK.
