Trade patterns and market demand attributes are germane to investment decisions, portfolio allocation models, sales target setting, and resource planning for professionals in finance industry and government. Here are some of the ways we’ve seen customers use QuERI:

  • QuERI data can help companies develop strategic plans and assess performance of country sales forces.
  • Data can allow companies to benchmark sales against objective, independent market size estimates at granularity greater than is available from other sources – commercial or governmental.
  • Managers of international portfolios can use QuERI market and industry specific estimates to rebalance global multi-product ETF portfolios.
  • Linked to company internal sales data, QuERI is useful for scenario development. Pre-developed econometric links between QuERI baselines and company sales performance data offer an easy to use planning tool or quick response estimates when economic conditions suddenly change.
  • QuERI data can surface the relationships between countries and regions.
  • A single metric – US dollars and real 1995 US dollars – applied across all countries facilitate cross market comparisons of industries and market sizes.
  • Combining population sizes with production or consumption allows for size independent estimates.
  • Using world or regional totals with country data makes global share comparisons simple.
  • With the ability to drill down form broad market aggregates to finely defined commodity sub-sectors, analysts can offer insights into which products offer the best opportunities for sales and growth.
