Aranca

 

Central and Eastern Europe | Business Research & Market Intelligence Solutions

Capability Overview

Aranca has executed over 100 research projects across sectors in all the major economies within Central & Eastern Europe (CEE) for regional and international companies evaluating opportunities from a market or sourcing / manufacturing base perspective.

The countries that comprise this region have a great level of heterogeneity and like in many other emerging economies, limited availability of syndicated reports or public data is a major challenge. Aranca recognizes that local knowledge and approach is a key success factor for generating insightful market intelligence and hence we have invested in building a high quality ‘partner network’ for conducting primary interviews in local languages. We combine our ability to generate on-the ground intelligence with desk research and our repository of research experience in this region to help our clients address business questions around market attractiveness, competitive landscapes, sourcing opportunities, cost benchmarking and economic growth outlook.
