Market Intelligence & Research
Research from BCC tells us that, what can make the difference between success and failure for a business when trading internationally is:
- Finding a trusted local business partner/ agent/ distributor
- Understanding the market opportunities and business environment
- Accessing relevant trade shows and participating in effective trade missions
Market Intelligence comes in all forms from understanding the customs and cultures of the country to knowing the price your products will sell in a specific market. Market intelligence is based around understanding the various markets and your customers along with product and competitor intelligence.

When entering a new and potentially unfamiliar market, having a helping hand on the ground can be a comfort, as much as a practical help. Importers/exporters can benefit from assistance with entry into a new market, including introductions to potential clients, agents, distributors, and in-market networks. We can offer advice and assistance in identifying the different options, such as providing a detailed analysis of an appropriate market entry or growth strategy and access to a trusted ecosystem of in-market guidance and support and contacts provided via our Global Business Network.
