International association for the measurement and evaluation of communication
6th May, 2017: A forecast of strong growth in the media intelligence sector on an increasingly global scale will also fuel more rapid industry consolidation, according to a new report published today.
The findings are shown in the Global Business Insights Study published today (May 17, 2017), the latest industry survey from the International Association for Measurement and Evaluation of Communication (AMEC).
Stronger sales opportunities than 12 months ago are behind the confidence in industry growth, with Asia Pacific and the Middle East/Asia (67%), identified as the regions believed to hold the strongest growth prospects for the next 12 months.
Most AMEC members also expect the recent high level of rapid industry consolidation to continue over the next two years with four out of five firms (80%) agreeing the recent high level of rapid industry consolidation will continue.
The survey gave a big “thumbs up” for AMEC’s new Integrated Evaluation Framework introduced less than a year ago, with 89% of AMEC members familiar with the Framework which has already been translated into 16 languages including Chinese. Four in ten (40%) AMEC members said they were already using the Framework in client work and 33% said they intended to use it soon.
Another key area contributing to the growth story is the reported increased demand for a global footprint solution for international measurement and insight services. More than three in five (63%) report increased demand for this service, with the biggest demand for international work coming from members operating in Asia Pacific and Eastern Europe.
The survey also found that investment priorities reflect the importance of staying up to date with evolving data capture technology (60%) and data sourcing opportunities (53%).
Richard Bagnall, Chairman of AMEC and CEO of Prime Research UK, said: “This report is hugely significant.
“It reflects an industry confident in its future despite the inevitability of more consolidation and already meeting the demand for a more international service. We are also delighted to see the strong endorsement from our members worldwide to the AMEC Integrated Evaluation Framework.”
The survey asked AMEC members for the first time about Fake News and what it meant to their business. One in three members felt the issue of Fake News has had a major impact on the measurement, research and intelligence industry, while a further 41% believe it has had a minor impact.
Members also identified the key areas in which they expected AMEC to support their businesses as:
