Market Studies

Market Studies

How well did your Machine Vision company perform against the market trends?

Which industries, which regions, and which Machine Vision applications should your Marketing and Sales focus on?

Which technologies should your Research & Development look into?

Those utmost important questions are better not answered just by educated guesses but rather based on profound analyses of the relevant markets and trends.

Market studies have always been a core offering by the Machine Vision consultants of the Vision Markets Network.

Here is an excerpt of our work on market analyses:

Project Outline

Step 1: Forming Hypotheses

At our market studies, we want to make sure that our analyses and your expectations are perfectly aligned. Thus, before we start, we need to understand the decisions you want to draw based on our work, and the questions you would like to answer. Furthermore, we will be developing hypotheses together with you, which our research is aimed to confirm or disprove.

Step 2: Pre-Research

In this phase, we pull together all knowledge at hand from our internal databases, resources, and the experts in our network. This preliminary analysis already provides the first insights. Based on this, we can judge if we are on the right track, i.e. if the hypotheses of step 1 are valid and if all relevant aspects are sufficiently covered.

The results of this phase are reported back to you so you can request further adjustments to the project scope.

Step 3: Comprehensive Research

Our consultants will tap into our various sources of information and bring them in relation. Depending on your required level of detail and certainty, this can go very deep and thorough, or rather high-level.
As a result, we will offer you a digital report, a Powerpoint presentation with an executive summary, and an interview/workshop with the lead consultant of your project.

Rest assured that your identity, your research query, and the results of our research remain fully confidential with Vision Markets.
