Identifying opportunities for brand and business growth

Mapping the evolving markets for your brands and products

Consumers and markets continually evolve. Brands and businesses must keep up with the staggering speed of this change if they want to win and maintain their market share. This means understanding your portfolio’s strengths and weaknesses and matching them to customer wants and needs, so you can perfect your market positioning today, and maximize opportunities for expansion tomorrow.

GfK’s Consumer Landscaping provides a highly accurate view of market dynamics, size, share and landscape, so you can evaluate your brand’s performance compared to your competitors or evaluate the viability of moving into a new market. By understanding what consumers see as your strengths versus the competition, you’ll be able to refine the way you communicate your portfolio’s benefits to succeed in reaching your audience. The analysis highlights unmet consumer needs, and sizes those opportunities, so you can decide if the potential for innovation offers a strong ROI for business investment.
