In the metallurgical industry market research, BDB has had the privilege of working with successful companies to analyse the market demand, perceptions and viability of takeovers.
For many of them, BDB has developed a market entry strategy for new products in India.
BDB has developed strategies for them to enter into several overseas markets, including China, ASEAN countries, Australia and countries of the Middle East and Africa.
For each assignment, the methodology varies because these are all customized research analysis.
For instance, to identify a new business opportunity, BDB first understands its clients’ strengths, weaknesses and expectations. The industrial horizons are then scanned so to speak, nationally or globally.
Thereafter, these short listed opportunities are investigated to verify whether they are relevant to BDB’s clients and whether they can be dove tailed with the business paradigm of its clients.
For new opportunity areas, each opportunity is thoroughly investigated quantitatively and qualitatively so that BDB’s client has a complete picture as well as flavour of the opportunity – both existing and emerging.
For market entry studies, BDB begins with detailed market research for the identified products, evaluates current and potential demand and then identifies locations for setting up the project. Based on these inputs, BDB conducts a techno-economic feasibility study.
At conclusion, the output of such market research studies comprehensively results in an incisive and fail-safe Growth Strategy Recommendation Document.
