Research & advisory services

We offer research and advisory services to help engineering organizations within discrete manufacturing enterprises, process/power/offshore EPCs and owner/operators, and building and civil infrastructure contractors and owners evaluate, select and justify new technology investments.

We serve technology providers through independent investigation, analysis and documentation of emerging market opportunities and their demand drivers and competitive dynamics, help in crafting competitive positioning, and surveys of customer satisfaction with new or upgraded offerings.

We provide institutional investors with insight into industry competitive dynamics, revenue and growth potential, and emerging market opportunities for technology providers.

Our white papers report key public findings of our commissioned research projects.
