"The most impressive data for me is the thematic research, company analysis and market landscape assessment. We use GlobalData to improve our internal decision but also to enter different market overseas."
"In these volatile and uncertain times we’ve found the COVID-19 related insight from GlobalData a huge benefit. Bringing more certainty, and supporting business understanding and decisions. In particular, the rapidly updated market and sector outlooks/forecasts, the experiences of other countries who may be further ahead in the virus curve, and the deeper understanding of consumer behaviours and attitudes over the crisis. Insight has been very useful in regular and rapid business updates, board papers and immediate business planning/response."
"COVID-19 has caused significant interference to our business and the COVID-19 intelligence from GlobalData has helped us reach better decisions around strategy. These two highlights have helped enormously to understand the projections into the future concerning our business units, we also utilise the project database to source new projects for Liebherr-Werk to use as an additional source to pitch for new business." Isabel Karremann, Market Analyst & Management
"It has been invaluable to have access to GlobalData’s market intelligence via its senior analysts, portal / dashboards and bespoke thematic / market / company and other reports and analysis. Particularly so during this past year for the challenges and opportunities our firm, and most importantly our clients, have sought to navigate and / or grasp during this period following the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide." Boko Inyundo, Senior Marketing Manager
"A one-stop-shop for all my CDMO insights and needs. The Thematic reports allow my team to best apply our limited time and resources to maximize our opportunity for success the first time. Instead of providing BI via reports and presentations, GlobalData lets me pull what is most relevant to my current needs, whether that is capability in a given field, the state of a molecular target, or how busy a CMO of interest may be." Principal Engineer/External CMC Collaborations Lead
