The need to address growing global competition has accelerated the development of systematic market intelligence at global companies.
The proportion of companies that have systematic market intelligence globally has grown in the past two years - from 63% to 76%. In addition, one third of the companies that don’t have a market intelligence operation intend to launch one within the next 12 months. Out of the companies with market intelligence functions, 64% intend to increase their investments in market intelligence, with geographical focus in Asia and Latin America.
The Survey also found several distinguishing qualities of companies with world class market intelligence functions.
1. They work closer with decision-makers
Over half of the companies with world class market intelligence capabilities have at most one organizational layer between the market intelligence function and the CEO, and none have more than four layers. Such companies also have more top management as internal clients.
2. They have more extensive networks
Companies with world class market intelligence capabilities get contributions from more people within the organization than companies on average.
3. They work in a more regular fashion
52% of market intelligence work goes into regular deliverables opposed to ad-hoc deliverables, while the figure is 45% for companies in general.
4. They more often have a centralized market intelligence function
While 69% of companies with world class market intelligence capabilities have a centralized market intelligence function, the same is true for only 56% of companies in general.
5. They use their budgets and staff more effectively
Even though companies with world class market intelligence capabilities work with intelligence budgets and team that are comparable in size to other companies in general, they score significantly higher both in the maturity level of their market intelligence functions and in decision-making efficiency.
