As seismic market shifts and massive disruptors create new opportunities—and new risks—architecture, engineering, and environmental consulting firm leaders need up-to-the-minute market intelligence data to make critical strategic decisions.

Market research is vital for navigating the constantly changing AE industry landscape and developing effective strategic business plans. By knowing which market sectors and geographic areas are poised to grow —and which ones aren’t—you can get a competitive edge on rival architecture, engineering, and environmental consulting firms.

Market intelligence data can help your firm:

  • Identify market sector and geographic hotspots
  • Gain a deep understanding of emerging trends
  • Assess market entry and expansion opportunities
  • Get a detailed understanding of the competition
  • Identify hidden, lucrative market opportunities 
  • Take the guesswork out of decision-making

Without a systematic market research program, you’re just rolling the dice, leaving your fate to chance.

Tailored to both specific market sectors and geographic regions, Morrissey Goodale’s customized market research studies provide detailed analyses of demographic and economic data, market sector trends and drivers, and project pipelines.
