Market Analysis in Crisis

The 2020 crisis has already affected all sectors of the economy and many companies are forced to rebuild their marketing and communication strategies in order not only to stay afloat, but also to use the crisis as an opportunity for growth - to analyze the situation and develop a strategy to work in the new economic environment.

The crisis affects each industry in a different way: some areas have suffered more, some less. Some companies have closed, while others, on the contrary, are developing even more rapidly due to increased demand for certain goods and services. But for all companies only one thing is clear: it will not be the same as before.

Pro-Consulting has adapted the standard research structure to the specifics of the current situation and offers two new products for market analysis during a crisis.

Their features:

  • Absence of retrospective analysis: we only focus on market changes in the first quarter of 2020.
  • Short-term market development forecast for the after-quarantine period
  • Analysis of the current activity of competitors, search for strengths and weaknesses in their behavior since the beginning of quarantine
  • Point recommendations

We offer two options of your market research in times of crisis. The first option is an express market analysis to form an anti-crisis plan. A brief research of key changes in the market, focusing on the analysis of competitor activity and modeling consumer behavior. The product is intended for small and medium-sized businesses and allows you to form an analytical platform for building a strategy

The structure of express market analysis

The second option is an in-depth analysis of your industry and of your competitors. Each company is forced to adapt to the new economy realities, regardless of the field of activity, both during quarantine and after it. To do this, it is necessary to figure out what new trends in the market have already been formed, what competitors are doing in order to maintain their share and revenue in the market, how sales channels change and suppliers of raw materials are redistributed, how to keep current customers and acquire new ones, whether it is necessary to bring them to the market a new proxy product / service for the period of economic recovery or is it still worth focusing on the development and improvement of the current goods / services portfolio.

In order to make a rational and promising strategic decision for the further development of your company, Pro-Consulting has prepared a new product for you, which is primarily intended for medium and large businesses.

After this research, the marketing strategist (who has practical experience in the implementing anti-crisis solutions in 2008-2009 and 2014-2015) will provide recommendations on the adaptation and development of your company during the quarantine and in new conditions after it.
