Market research

Quarterly trends   The Quarterly Trends surveys are recognised indicators of up-to-the-minute market trends across the home improvement and building products industries. An authoritative form of market research, each survey is sponsored by a leading company and tracks a different industry, including the windows, rainwater and drainage, conservatories, roofline and cement industries. Relevant topical issues and concerns are covered in detail and trend data includes a confidence index, expectations of future sales, price levels and profitability. Leading trade journals Glass Age, The Fabricator, Builders Merchants' News and the Timber Trade Journal publish the Quarterly Trends surveys. You will find the latest reports on-site in full, plus additional tables and charts.   More...

Market reports   We produce a number of definitive reports, based on real market intelligence and extensive programmes of original research on the industries covered. Market Reports include key information and insightful commentary on, for example, the emerging relationship between the roofline and rainwater industries. Reports include the conservatory and window industries, the decking and fencing markets as well as the PVC window and door profile markets in the UK and Ireland. Selected Market Reports are available for purchase on-line.   More...

Ad-hoc research   A real competitive edge can be gained with our independent and objective research. The results of ad-hoc or tailored research are not shared with competitors, and far more strategic concerns can be addressed based on penetrating analysis and insights. Use us as outside observers to find out what your customers think of your business - the reality of public perception can often differ alarmingly from how you think you are perceived. Discover how effective your marketing and promotion are, and how to improve them.   More...

Market tracking   Providing low-cost, confidential, accurate and comprehensive market information based on company sales, the schemes give details on the development of the market as a whole as well as various sectors within it. Similar to EIDOS schemes used by national retailers and the 'sheds', value and volume of sales are covered plus important trends in the structure of the market.   More...
