Market Research

By listening to the marketplace you can acquire market knowledge by detecting changes in customer perceptions, gauge interest in a new product or service before launch, or assess competitor strengths and weaknesses. Market research can play a major role in the success of any business and is a proven approach to gathering knowledge about the marketplace. SPG provides the following market research services.

Market Surveys

A market survey is an excellent tool for judging acceptance/interest level in a new product or service under consideration. Common reasons for a market survey include gauging interest level in a product or service before committing funds to the project, gaining insight into the advantage of your product or service over that of competitors, understanding what product or service features are of most value to prospective customers and determining the satisfaction level of your customers vs. competitors’ customers in a blind survey.

Market Feasibility Studies

In order to acquire financing, a market feasibility study is usually required by investors or lenders prior to launching a project, product or service. At SPG we have prepared feasibility studies for many business start-ups, as well as, established companies seeking to introduce a new product or service. The purpose of the feasibility is to objectively assess the market potential for the business prior to investing large sums of capital. The end result of a feasibility study is to provide the client with detailed information so that they can make a GO / NO GO decision with confidence.
