Market research


We support companies, public institutions and trade associations in their process of selection and analysis of market opportunities on a global scale and in the formulation of development marketing strategies.

Our knowledge and expertise cross many industries worldwide, with a focus on the furniture, furnishing and lighting sectors and the related supply and distribution chains. Our research activity is based on a longstanding experience in gathering, monitoring and interpreting data, further enhanced by a constant dialogue with sector companies and stakeholders through structured and dedicated surveys.

We have built, over the years, a unique observatory on competitive systems functioning in different sectors and countries, as well as on product development, demand features, consumer behaviour and megatrends affecting the industry (e.g., innovative materials, sustainability, digitalization, e-commerce, mass customization, etc.).

We offer our clients market research reports (available off-the-shelf for customers) and tailored services on demand.
