Market Research and Advisory Services

Regional coverage

Projects focused on the Latin America and Caribbean region are executed by a team with over 20 years’ experience including native speaking consultants on the ground in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Mexico supported by analysts speaking both Spanish and Portuguese based out of the United States and UK.

This experience covers a variety of research methodologies across a broad range of industry sectors.

Background and opportunities

With an increasing population that currently stands at approx. 650 million the Latin America region has long been an area of investment interest thanks to the historic relations and close ties to European settlers and an abundance of natural resources.

Whilst traditionally an export-based location the region is major source of raw materials and minerals with the two main economic sectors being Mining and Agriculture, thanks to tropical and temperate climate. The end of commodities boom in the 2010’s, which earlier had many positive effects has led to economic stagnation, with the return to growth only recently forecast.

Despite this many industry sectors appear buoyant and the potential for returns are attracting investment from global corporations and aspiring international firms, with Healthcare and Manufacturing leading the way along with e-commerce, boosted by the growth of people connected to the internet.

Through our network of on the ground consultants and analysts speaking both Portuguese and Spanish we can support with local research, interviews with customers and key opinion leaders and gather trustworthy insights based on reliable data.
