Analysis of the Western European Infant Care Solutions Market

Analysis of the Western European Infant Care Solutions Market

Each Frost & Sullivan research service follows a stringent methodology. Once a title has been identified, it is first subjected to a feasibility check to establish its potential impact and commercial viability.

Once the go-ahead has been given, lead analysts work in conjunction with their team to fully scope the project, basing segmentation on market issues that have been ascertained through primary research at the feasibility stage.

Having established the initial study structure, data collection commences, and the analyst team prepares for primary interviews. Contact lists are drawn up and interviews are arranged with known industry and end-user contacts, and internal Frost & Sullivan resources and databases are used to establish market straw models for subsequent validation.

Once this step has been performed, there is sufficient information to design and validate the questionnaire that forms the basis of the primary interviews. The primary research is then conducted.

Typically, a broad cross section of 20 to 30 interviews are conducted (depending on the number of participants in the market) of the following designations: product managers; marketing managers; marketing directors; heads of business development; the R&D community; trade and industry associations; opinion leaders in primary and secondary care, in both public and private sectors; and government officials and implementation agencies.
