The world changes quickly, and quantitative data can inform our perspectives and help us better understand complex markets and audiences. Toward that end, GLG regularly conducts targeted surveys to provide timely insights on the most topical themes impacting business today.
We call these Network Surveys.
Survey topics range from category trends to supply chain changes, market sizing and diligence, brand perception, to much more. GLG’s experienced researchers partner with expert Network Members to develop detailed survey questions that uncover deep market insights.
Below is a selection of recent Network Survey data points. Every month we’ll provide three to five data points from multiple markets for a quick look into the work we’re doing to bring insights to light.
