Marketing Research Ends 2012 On Downward Trend

The 2012 industry analysis was based on data from the top 50 firms, plus 157 smaller firms whose data was supplied by the Council of American Survey Research Organizations.

The three top-ranking firms maintained their positions this year: Nielsen Holdings N.V., with just over $2.6 billion in U.S. research revenue in 2012; Kantar, with an estimated $929.4 million; and Ipsos, with $590 million. The list also included seven newcomers who experienced stronger years in 2012.

Marketing News has featured the annual Honomichl ranking of U.S. marketing research firms since 1989. Also featured is a report on the top 25 international research firms. Watch for that global report in the August 2013 issue of Marketing News.
