Professional Market Research...

An MTW Research "Research & Analysis" market report can take up to 3 months to research, compile, write and edit, with a range of methodologies used, including but not limited to...

  • Industry Sales Data - representative samples of sales and financial information directly from the industry is incorporated into all our "Research & Analysis" reports, ensuring our market reports are more accurate than our competitors. 

  • Strategic Marketing Review - a detailed strategic analysis is undertaken by experienced professionals with qualifications in strategic marketing, ensuring the analysis of opportunities and threats, trend comment and interpretation of data is as accurate a depiction of the current market as possible. 

  • Primary Qualitative Research - input from manufacturers / distributors / trade associations / contractors etc.

  • Secondary Desk Research involving a large number of Government departments, as well as trade journals/magazines, newspapers, company internet sites, company reports, sales literature, retail / distribution outlet visits, directories etc.

  • Research methodology review, appraisal and editing by experienced research professionals.

  • Client Feedback - many of our clients purchase regularly and provide us with good feedback on which we can enhance our market estimates and maintain the highest quality of research input.

We place great emphasis on primary research and listening to the views of the industry.  Whereas other report providers may base their reports almost entirely on secondary research (we know, we used to write many of them!), it is our primary research which we hope sets us out from the competition.  We know that only in-depth, professional quantitative and qualitative market research can lead to superior market reports.  As such, if you would like to submit your views on your market, we urge you to get in touch with us - we'd be more than happy to have a chat!

Superior Market Reports...

MTW Research market reports are compiled by professional market researchers who are qualified past degree level in strategic marketing & market research, providing quality research information and relevant interpretation of this information. Another factor which sets us out from the competition is that our reports are never outsourced to generic research companies following set methodologies, we will never cut corners by exploiting lower cost agencies based in Asia or other lower labour cost countries to undertake our research. 

We don't provide 'interactive reports' which simply waste your time and hike costs, or try to blind you with fancy charts.  We know that it is the statistics and analysis which is important, as well as providing the information in an easy to use and navigate format.  Our data is based on as representative a sample of the industry as possible, provided in an easy to read and disseminate report format and contains relevant and insightful comment on market trends and influences.  As such, our reports offer the highest possible level of research and analysis whilst also representing the best value for money. 

In addition, we make sure that all MTW Research reports are edited by experienced marketing professionals who have been researching the DIY, Home Improvement and Construction markets since the late 1990s.  Rather than simply using a standard set of editing guidelines by editors who have little prior knowledge of the reports they are editing, MTW Research use editors who understand the nature of, and key drivers for, each of the reports' respective markets. 

Report Price Guarantee...

Its the quality of research, our experience and extensive use of actual sales data combined with qualitative comment that sets us apart from our competitors.  On top of this, our reports represent excellent value for money with prices starting from just £595 - significantly lower than any of our competitors.

Our cost efficient research structure and streamlined base means we can continue to offer great value for money and you'll find that our reports are often much cheaper and of a higher quality than equivalent reports available.  We're confident that we can't be beaten on quality of research or price of our reports.  However, if you do manage to find a similar report for a cheaper price we'll match this price and knock a further 20% off - ensuring you will receive the best quality market intelligence at the very best price.

A Reliable & Trusted Research Partner...
