Market Intelligence

In a complex and dynamic business environment, it is easy to lose sight of the objective of both short- and long-term business decisions. Equally, it is crucial to understand the market context of any strategy when evaluating a company’s next direction. An attractive business case can turn sour overnight due to a change in legislation, a competitor product launch, or a shift in production economics.

Unlike many other consultancies, Ricardo Strategic Consulting (RSC) is able to understand challenges in the automotive and other industries from macro- to micro-level. With extensive access to industry data, sufficient experience to interpret those inputs, and support from our own market insight methodology, RSC is able to help our clients navigate a complex maze of competing industry trends.

Our experienced team also uses industry-leading techniques in advanced modelling, analytics, and big data to deliver insights to our clients.
