Sector Research and Analysis

Sector research and analysis provides government, private sector and civil society with a comprehensive understanding and insight into a particular sector or industry of the economy. This research is often used in order to determine the ‘status quo’, and provides an objective baseline from which further detailed analysis can be undertaken. For example, local, provincial and national government often commission sector research as a foundation towards developing a particular policy or strategy position, while the private sector might commission sector research to investigate a particular market opportunity.

Techniques utilised when undertaking sector research and analysis include desktop research such as demographic and economic analysis, policy and strategy reviews, literature reviews, global and national best-practice analysis, benchmarking assessments, as well as primary research in the form of surveys, stakeholder engagement, and workshop facilitation.
