Simultaneously, extensive secondary research is done, and key secondary data is collected as part of this process. This secondary data is collected from various databases, industry journals, whitepapers, company annual reports, research publications, and other paid data sources and relevant literature. Company profiles which include strategies, new product developments, recent investments, major products and services, financials and business plans are sourced from the annual reports, SEC filings, industry associations to preserve the quality of the information being displayed. The findings from both the primary and the secondary research process combined go under further processing for market breakdown and forecasting.
The last phase is providing intelligence in the form of presentation, charts, graphics and other different formats helping the clients in a faster and efficient understanding of the market. Under this phase complete market engineering is involved which includes analyzing the collected data from different sources and existing proprietary datasets while using various data triangulation methods for market breakdown and forecasting. The publisher has developed their market forecasting methodology that, in addition to the main market values, also takes into account other macroeconomic factors (global or local) that might have some bearing on the market under study. Taking all the necessary data, a robust forecast is developed using an algorithm that involves both static (multivariate) as well as dynamic (time-series) regression analysis. Special care is taken to make sure their algorithm passes the necessary statistical tests, and the mean prediction for future years obtained is reliable with a very high confidence level. Following data validation, the analysts begin to write the report presenting insights with the help of charts, graphs, and tables.
