Our Approach

The best way to gather reliable market information in China is to directly engage the people who shape your markets. This is why our research in China relies heavily on fieldwork, including formal and informal discussions with customers, competitors, channel partners, and other industry influencers.

Our interviews are conducted by experienced consultants who can speak as equals to senior executives, approach interviews with the big picture in mind, and illicit key information often inaccessible to less experienced interviewers.

We also conduct secondary research using the internet and subscription-based sources. Since each situation is unique, we work with you at the start of the project to find a solution that meets your needs and budgets.
