Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

Company Research Services

The Company Research Services industry is composed of businesses that conduct research on management teams, strategic developments and the financial operations of companies in the private and public sector. Industry services are predominantly catered toward financial institutions. As a result, demand for industry services is tied to corporate profit and research budget levels. In addition, stronger demand for industry services has also fostered growth in profitability during the five-year period. Due to this, industry revenue is expected to increase over the five years to 2018. Although the industry is expected to benefit from growing demand from finance and insurance industries, industry revenue is expected to fall over the five years to 2023 due to the threat of external competition and increasing investor uncertainty.

Companies in this industry conduct research on management teams, strategic developments, business locations, and the financial conditions of public and private companies. This industry excludes companies that provide basic company research to complement their equity and investment research products and services.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
