20 Top Market Research Companies (2024)

market research consulting companies

Self-serve market research tools are helpful when you need answers fast. But a market research company can be a great asset when you want data on a more personalized or granular level.

The data collected by a top market research firm can help you optimize your product marketing, communications strategy, customer experience, online user experience, and more.

From completely bespoke services to expert reporting on the topics that matter most to your audience, these are 20 of the best consumer and business-to-business market research companies.

Ipsos is a market research company that connects businesses with online communities.

undefined

When you work with Ipsos, you'll be matched with a community of people that share traits with your ideal customers. These similarities help you figure out what your ideal customer or user may respond well to.

Ipsos’ wide range of services covers multiple industries, including retail, healthcare, transportation, politics, and automotive.

With Ipsos, you can do things such as:

  • Assemble custom panels of consumers
  • Record interviews and mystery shopper journeys that document retail experiences
  • View reports about key consumer insights and demographics
  • Run brand, packaging, and product testing
  • Conduct message testing for public affairs projects
  • Develop studies measuring the quality of healthcare and patient satisfaction
  • Engage in public opinion polling

You can also work with an Ipsos strategist to get further insights about your market.

Ipsos recruits its panel and community members through a variety of advertising channels, and participants aren’t paid for their involvement. Instead, members receive points they can later redeem for prizes.

Because Ipsos services are so customizable, you’ll need to get in touch with the Ipsos team to discuss your needs and receive a price quote.

2. Edelman DXI

Edelman Data & Intelligence (DXI) provides its customers with insights related to their target markets, customer behaviors, and broader economic trends .

undefined

The company is part of the Edelman global communications firm. By working with their DXI unit, you can get help with:

  • Social listening and analysis
  • Competitive market analysis
  • Content auditing
  • Paid media planning
  • Risk forecasting
  • Workforce analytics

Edelman DXI has offices throughout the world, so they can provide insights across a wide variety of global markets and audiences.

Because Edelman DXI services will be unique to each client, you’ll need to get in touch with the company to learn more about how much it will cost to become a client.

3. Exploding Topics

Exploding Topics is an alternative to traditional market research firms.

undefined

Rather than relying on a small panel sample or audience group selected by a firm, you can glean insights from what might be the world’s largest repository of consumer wants, needs, and insights: the internet.

First, we use artificial intelligence (AI) to listen to conversations happening across:

  • News outlets
  • Social networks

Next, our data analysis experts use this information to help identify the top market trends, topics, brands, and technologies that interest consumers and businesses today.

We enter these findings into our searchable database—and use it as the basis for insightful, actionable reports that break down the top trends you need to know about right now.

Our data stretches back 15 years and covers over 40 industries. Plus, it’s updated every day—so you always have fresh insights to work with.

Whether you rely on our reports or prefer to search the database yourself, you can use Exploding Topics data to support your:

  • Entry into new markets
  • Product development
  • New marketing strategies
  • Startup investing
  • Competitor acquisition
  • New business formation

You can access some of our trend data and reports for free right now. For complete access to every Exploding Topics data point and report—including our Meta Trends feature that shows how trends intersect—you’ll need a paid Exploding Topics Pro plan.

It’s just $1 for the first two weeks of your Exploding Topics Pro membership, and as little as $39 per month (billed annually) after that.

Gartner ’s market research services overlap with those offered by Ipsos, but cover a few additional industries including education, energy, and finance.

undefined

As a Gartner customer, you can:

  • Review prepared reports
  • Engage in personalized consulting services
  • Attend industry events

The data gleaned from these reports and activities can help your company enhance its internal business operations as well as improve consumer-facing products or campaigns. Gartner’s information can be useful for:

  • Understanding how to best position your brand
  • Improving project strategy development and decisions
  • Estimating tech lifecycles and improving corporate purchasing
  • Evaluating your top market competitors
  • Developing a more sustainable business strategy
  • Determining how AI may impact your business
  • Preparing for economic changes
  • Improving your company’s market share

Some of Gartner’s reports are available for free on their website, so you can get a taste of what the company offers. If it seems like the right fit for your needs, you’ll need to get in touch with the Gartner team to get a price quote.

5. IMS Marketing

IMS is a full-service marketing agency—but they offer a market research arm to help B2B clients better understand how to position their brand and products.

undefined

Their customized services can help with:

  • Understanding customer feedback
  • Testing the feasibility of a new product or market
  • Analyzing the competitor landscape
  • Creating market segments
  • Researching new audience groups
  • Identifying and improving brand perception
  • Pinpointing gaps in existing or prior research attempts

IMS Marketing is like Edelman DXI in that its services are entirely bespoke—the company doesn’t offer prepared reports like Gartner or Exploding Topics.

You can only become an IMS client after meeting with the company and allowing them to get a full understanding of your business, market, and objectives. Prospective clients can take the first step by getting in touch with IMS to set up a consultation.

6. Forrester

Forrester is a market research firm that provides insights for business, government, and technology operations.

undefined

While B2C businesses can use Forrester, a lot of the firm's data is especially valuable for B2B markets.

You can use Forrester insights to:

  • Explore what business customers need and want
  • Develop your tech stack to keep pace with competitors
  • Prepare for supply chain and development challenges
  • Review prepared sales strategy templates
  • Discover competitor weaknesses

Forrester offers advisory services and access to data-rich reports, so you can choose whether you’d like to take a more self-directed approach or have hands-on help.

A single Forrester report may cost $1,000 or more, and advisory services are custom quoted based on your needs. Anyone interested in working with Forrester directly will need to get in touch with their sales team to discuss options.

Kantar offers market research services for a range of B2C industries, including consumer packaged goods (CPG), fashion, hospitality, retail, and technology.

undefined

Kantar’s research solutions include:

  • The collection of qualitative consumer data in over 80 global markets
  • Customized research surveys with panels prepared from a network of over 150 million respondents
  • The development of healthcare professional and patient panels
  • Expert survey design

The company also offers Kantar Marketplace, a do-it-yourself market research platform that lets users guide their own data collection and analysis efforts.

Marketplace access is available on either a pay-per-use plan or with an annual commitment starting at $50,000.

You can’t sign up on the Kantar website, though—for access to Marketplace as well as bespoke Kantar research services, you’ll need to get in touch with their sales team.

8. Bellomy Market Intelligence

Bellomy Market Intelligence is a consulting firm that works with retail, healthcare, financial, technology, energy, and consumer goods businesses.

undefined

Like several of the other market research firms on this list, Bellomy offers its clients access to panels of consumers that meet relevant B2B or B2C audience criteria.

You can then use these panels to:

  • Run quick polls with rapid response times
  • Host open-ended discussions to collect feedback
  • Create ongoing focus forums for asynchronous discussions
  • Watch as a Bellomy moderator leads members of your panel in an online chat
  • Conduct one-on-one, in-depth interviews
  • Track consumer behaviors and motivations with repeated daily online surveys
  • Host in-person focus groups and retail events to collect data

Bellomy then uses AI tools to help its clients glean insights from qualitative and quantitative research results.

As with many other market research groups, you’ll need to get in touch with Bellomy to learn more about its available services and prices.

Campos is a market research firm focused on branding, product development, and customer experience data.

undefined

Campos works with corporations and public institutions seeking a rebrand. Its services overlap with those provided by IMS and Bellomy, and include:

  • Product pricing research
  • Consumer segmentation and analysis
  • Demand forecasting
  • Focus group creation
  • In-depth interviews for customer journey mapping
  • In-store observations

Unlike many research firms that conduct most of their analysis online—such as through video interviews and web-based simulations—Campos specializes in face-to-face analysis.

The company maintains a research center in Pittsburgh, where they're able to:

  • Assemble and interview large panels
  • Host software usability testing sessions
  • Create model stores and homes for interaction testing
  • Run mock jury simulations

Campos clients may watch the studies in action through two-way mirrors or view a live stream of research activities. The firm can also arrange for similar in-person experiences at partner locations around the U.S.

Campos services are based on scope and need, so you'll need to get in touch with the firm if you're interested in working with them.

10. Matrix Sciences

Matrix Sciences is a research and testing firm for agriculture and food brands.

undefined

The company's research arm conducts studies to discover consumer opinions around food products. They deliver a mix of quantitative and qualitative data through processes like:

  • In-home product usage analysis
  • Whole-household evaluations and interviews
  • Panel discussions and interviews about food products or ideas
  • Studies around how product packaging stands out in stores

Matrix Sciences also maintains a panel of expert sensory researchers who provide research and feedback around how a food item may be perceived. This process considers a product's:

  • Visual appearance

Like Campos, much of Matrix Science's research happens in-person. The firm maintains 14 testing locations in the U.S. and Canada.

Prospective customers must get in touch with the company to discuss tests, options, and pricing.

Knit is an AI-powered research platform that quickly delivers panel data and analysis to clients.

undefined

You can use the tool to conduct qualitative and quantitative research. Tell Knit what you need, and the platform will assemble a panel from their database of over five million consumers.

Knit panelists range from 13 to 65 years old and are verified as real through a process involving both video and AI-generated questions.

Panelists can answer questions via video or survey form, depending on how the Knit study is set up.

You won't have to watch hours and hours of video, though. Knit uses GPT-4 to analyze these recordings and create:

  • Video summaries
  • Quick takeaways
  • Key theme summaries
  • Highlight reels

The platform also includes an AI research assistant that can answer questions about the data you get from Knit.

YouGov is a public opinion polling service.

undefined

The company offers opinion polling data for free on its website. These free data sets cover public opinion on topics related to:

  • Business and economy
  • Digital technology and media
  • Entertainment, arts, and culture
  • Health and science
  • International affairs
  • Politics and current affairs
  • Travel and transport

You can dig down into each area of interest to learn about people's thoughts on specific people, brands, events, and more.

YouGov also provides data about survey respondents' habits. For example, they provide data on Americans' typical hours of sleep per night:

undefined

The ability to sift through all of YouGov's collected polling data may be enough for some users. If not, the company offers self-serve surveys, prepared surveys, and even custom research solutions for paying customers.

By working with YouGov, you can survey 26 million panelists living in 55 markets.

Because the company offers several bespoke solutions in addition to its free data, you'll need to set up a call with YouGov to learn more about options and pricing.

13. Fieldwork

Fieldwork is a qualitative market research firm offering solutions for focus groups.

undefined

You can engage Fieldwork to run a consumer focus group at their facilities throughout the U.S., your office, or another location around the world. Online focus groups are also an option for Fieldwork customers.

Fieldwork's support for medical and legal testing sets them apart from some other market research firms on this list. The company maintains permanent and portable medical simulation labs, and can also support:

  • Medical device testing for FDA approval
  • Medical device usability testing
  • Mock jury research
  • Trial simulations

If you're interested in working with Fieldwork to run a focus group, you'll need to submit a request for proposal through the company's website.

Second to None offers solutions for both B2C and B2B brands in a variety of industries including:

  • Financial service
  • Consumer products and services
  • Retail sales

Like many of its competitors, Second to None doesn't publish its pricing online. If you think the company's services are the right fit for your brand, you'll need to request an initial consultation with the firm.

16. Civicom

Civicom is a market research services group offering online and offline options.

undefined

The company can facilitate a variety of market research projects, including:

  • Online focus groups
  • Recorded in-person panels

Civicom also offers its own AI-powered report generation tool called Quillit. Civicom's clients can use Quillit to create summaries, produce research reports, and format documents. The tool is GDPR and HIPAA compliant, too.

The company's ability to conduct hybrid focus group sessions is notable—if you aren't sure what kind of market research work you need, Civicom is a good place to start.

The company also provides additional optional consulting and support services including strategy mentorship, marketing audits, and done-for-you marketing content.

If you're interested in working with Cascade Insights, you'll need to get in touch with the company to request a consultation and price quote based on your market research goals.

Thanks to the support of Kadence team, we were able to meet all the goals we had set for ourselves with the Consumer Passport Program, inculcating a culture of customer centricity – as a passionate brand, we believe that the customer comes first; without the customer no business can be successful – and seeing the world through the customer’s point of view to understand the realities of market. Havells
Kadence team is more like a partner to us. We have run a number of projects together and … the pro-activeness, out of the box thinking and delivering in spite of tight deadlines are some of the key reasons we always reach out to them. Vital Strategies
Kadence were an excellent partner on this project; they took time to really understand our business challenges, and developed a research approach that would tackle the exam question from all directions.  The impact of the work is still being felt now, several years later.

Fancy a look round our platform? Show me

When it comes to understanding modern American consumers, guesswork just won’t cut it. With transformative changes affecting the way we shop, behave, and consume media, it’s no secret that in-depth consumer research should be at the heart of every strategic marketing, product, or business decision you make. 

There are a myriad of US market research companies out there armed with customer insight platforms, smart research tools, and AI-powered features that give you the answers you need. But which is best for reaching your US target audiences? Whose data can you trust? With so much choice, it can be tough to figure out which market research company is the right fit for your business needs. 

To help you make that decision (‘cause we’re nice like that), we’ve put together a no-nonsense rundown of the best market research companies for US consumer insights right now, outlining the specialist areas and key use cases you might consider them for. Grab a hot drink and settle in. 

Oh – and if you’re interested in the best market research companies in the UK , we’ve got a shortlist of those worth skimming through too. 

How to choose the right US market research company

It sounds obvious, but every US market research company is different. The type of consumer data they collect, and how they deliver it to you really varies. So before you commit to a research partner, think carefully about the kind of support you need – and crucially, how quickly you need it. Start by asking these six questions:

  • Do they know about your audience? 
  • Do they have expertise in your industry/category, with a proven track record of success?
  • Do they conduct the right kind of research to answer your questions, with a sound and trusted methodology? 
  • Are they transparent about how they collect and analyze data to ensure quality?
  • Do they have the capacity to provide fast results, with regular client communication?
  • Most importantly, will they understand your long-term goals and add value to your business?

If you can answer “yes” to each of these questions, you’re on the right track to finding the perfect partner. But if you want more guidance on how to drive research forward, here’s our list of the leading US market research companies worth considering, in no particular order. Well, except for us – obviously.

It tells you what your target customers think of your company, the best and most impactful ways to influence and engage them, where you stack up against key competitors, and provides a blueprint for accelerating financially responsible growth for a business.

Market research can also be used to explore how to take new products or services to market. In effect, market research informs business strategy. 

Here are a few ways market research can help a regional brand or business.

  • Measure the market appetite for a new product or service before taking it to market.
  • Understand the price sensitivities, offers, or promotions that resonate best with target customers.
  • Tell you who is most likely to buy your product or service.
  • Test advertising messages to avoid wasting paid media dollars.
  • Help make smart decisions about packaging and presentation of your product or service.
  • Determine the best voice or spokesperson for an upcoming advertising campaign.

For businesses, market research underpins the design of a business and marketing strategy and is the foundation of profitable growth. 

Media saturation and an inundation of daily marketing messages has created a polluted environment for consumers. This makes it hard for regional brands, products, and services to stand out and connect with desired customers. Market research provides the strategy needed to do that effectively and cost efficiently without risk.

It is almost certain that your competitors are using market research services to obtain their own advantage and that is another good reason to have market research as part of your marketing strategy.

Effective Market Research Techniques:

To draw an effective business and marketing strategy, here are some common research methodologies to consider using to get started:

1. Surveys and Questionnaires: Feedback from your target market provides valuable direction. Online surveys and questionnaires allow businesses to get direct feedback, in large numbers, from customers regarding their preferences and expectations. 

2. Competitor Analysis: Analyze your competitors by studying the kind of content they are sharing. Detect gaps in the market and focus on the areas that you can excel in with these insights.

3. Focus Groups: In addition to surveying many potential customers, you may also consider bringing together a small and diverse pool of current or desired customers into focus groups and have open discussions or conversations about your offering to seek feedback on what you may be missing that they desire. This will enable you to fine-tune and improve your offerings and creative storytelling to ensure resonance in your marketing strategy. 

4. Brand Tracking: Watch trends and be alert to shifts in the marketplace through consistent brand tracking research. Brand tracking helps identify new trends in real time to help you adjust strategy and gain a competitive advantage on your competition. 

5. Online Communities: Interact with customer populations through online community platforms to have more intimate conversations with your target customers through online community platforms. These platforms offer flexibility as the activities can be adjusted daily. They also provide a great space for target customers to shop your product or service up close and for you to collect feedback in real time.

Market research is like a GPS for business. It provides a clear path to success and gives you a detailed path on how to get there. Companies that take the time to collect quality market research will always have the upper hand on the ones that don’t.

New survey reveals $2 trillion market opportunity for cybersecurity technology and service providers

As the digital economy grows, digital crime grows with it. Soaring numbers of online and mobile interactions are creating millions of attack oppor­tunities. Many lead to data breaches that threaten both people and businesses. At the current rate of growth, damage from cyberattacks will amount to about $10.5 trillion annually by 2025—a 300 percent increase from 2015 levels. 1 Steve Morgan, “2022 Cybersecurity Almanac: 100 facts, figures, predictions, and statistics,” Cybercrime Magazine , January 19, 2022.

In the face of this cyber onslaught, organizations around the world spent around $150 billion in 2021 on cybersecurity , growing by 12.4 percent annually. 2 Growth is compounded. However, set against the scale of the problem, even this “security awakening” is probably insufficient. A survey of 4,000 midsized companies suggests that threat volumes will almost double from 2021 to 2022. 3 The biggest cyber security threats coming in 2022 , Coro. According to the survey, nearly 80 percent of the observed threat groups operating in 2021, and more than 40 percent of the observed malware, had never been seen previously. These dynamics point to significant potential in an evolving market. Currently available commercial solutions do not fully meet customer demands in terms of automation, pricing, services, and other capabilities—which this article will explore in further detail. As a result, the gap today between the $150 billion vended market and a fully addressable market is huge. At approximately 10 percent penetration of security solutions today, the total opportunity amounts to a staggering $1.5 trillion to $2.0 trillion addressable market (Exhibit 1). This does not imply the market will reach such a size anytime soon (current growth rate is 12.4 percent annually off a base of approximately $150 billion in 2021), but rather that such a massive delta requires providers and investors to “unlock” more impact with customers by better meeting the needs of underserved segments, continuously improving technology, and reducing complexity—and the current buyer climate may pose a unique moment in time for innovation in the cybersecurity industry.

The underpenetration of cybersecurity products and services is, on the face of it, the result of the below-target adoption of cybersecurity products and services by organizations—which suggests that the budgets of many if not most chief information security officers (CISOs) are underfunded. Cyber­security providers must meet the challenge by modernizing their capabilities and rethinking their go-to-market strategies.

To maximize the opportunity, providers must get a grip on the factors shaping the market, the segments most likely to grow, and the services customers need. Here we set out four areas likely to be the focus of such discussions: cloud technologies, pricing mechanisms, artificial intelligence, and (particularly in the midmarket) managed services. With strategic planning in these areas, and a robust approach to implementation, cybersecurity providers can make themselves more competitive and get a slice of the $2 trillion pie.

Growing cybermarket potential

Why does the cybermarket offer such significant potential right now? We see five key drivers.

More attacks targeting smaller companies

From a demand perspective, fast-growing smaller organizations are exposed to proliferating digital touchpoints and ecosystem relationships. In addition, malware such as ransomware can pose an existential threat to small and midsize businesses (SMBs) and midmarket companies in a way it often doesn’t to large enterprises. What might remain a silent breach at a larger organization is often a significant, overt disruption at a smaller one. For example, a Texas-based midsize steel structure manufacturer was forced into bankruptcy in May 2019 when ransom­ware permanently encrypted both its tooling and financial accounting software. Ransoms can be out of reach, while information retrieval and recovery services are timely and difficult. Moreover, the trust of customers can prove difficult to recover once a company has been breached. In fact, according to previous McKinsey research on the importance of digital trust, in the past 12 months nearly 10 percent of respondents reported stopping business with a supplier after learning of a data breach.

Midmarket entities are often targeted by criminals looking to exploit unsophisticated security tooling. These companies, for example, may miss threats such as EternalBlue, an exploit developed by the US National Security Agency and later used by Wannacry ransomware. Many smaller entities use a single-backup strategy, which can leave them susceptible to attacks from ransomware such as PureLocker.

The proliferation of ransomware attacks targeting SMBs and midmarket companies means that even those that don’t currently employ or engage a security team have a responsibility to act. Fortunately, the SMB segment is becoming truly addressable by cybersecurity products and services for the first time, thanks to emerging economies of scale.

The impetus from regulation

At least 45 states and Puerto Rico introduced or considered more than 250 bills or resolutions that deal significantly with cybersecurity. 4 Cybersecurity Legislation 2021, National Conference of State Legislatures, July 1, 2022. Federal initiatives include the US National Defense Authorization Act, Executive Order 14028, 5 Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity: NIST’s Responsibilities, May 2021. and the extension of the False Claims Act to include the misrepresentation of an organization’s cybersecurity program and qualifications.

Based upon McKinsey’s client conversations, federal cybersecurity contracting requirements are trickling down to thousands of SMB and midmarket contractors. The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is discussing new rules on breach notifications. Compliance challenges grow more onerous as ecosystems proliferate. The Department of Defense’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), for example, underscores the critical importance of holistic cybersecurity, much of it beyond the reach of SMBs and the mid­market unless they get help from vendors.

Rules around the world are equally stringent. The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation, for example, may levy fines of up to 4 percent of global turnover against companies that fail to protect their customers. 6 An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation may levy fines of up to 2 percent of global turnover, when 2 percent only represents the possible fine for “less severe” violations. The “most severe” violations may fine up to 4 percent of revenue.

CISOs are as serious as ever about closing the (log) visibility gap

Moves to ramp up log processing are critical because just three years ago the average enterprise saw only 30 percent of what was happening. Finding more needles in the haystack will probably require more commitment—in particular, in areas such as AI, which can spot cyberthreats and malicious activities. For providers, AI will force a rethinking of technology and how they bring it to market.

Over the past three years, companies have boosted their share of total log volume visibility from about 30 percent to about 50 percent on average and are pushing toward 65 to 80 percent over the next three years (Exhibit 2). 7 McKinsey Cyber Market Map Survey. SMBs and the midmarket have been slightly more active than larger enterprises, and future growth in visibility use cases is predicted to be stronger among these smaller companies. SMBs expect to widen their deployment of end point detection and response (EDR) tooling, to use single panes of glass that ingest and monitor their cloud environments, and to rely on managed-service partners (such as providers of managed detection and response services) for more sophisticated activities.

A surprising aspect of the current market landscape is the significant extent to which the slowest-moving enterprises are trailing their faster-moving peers. Bottom-quartile enterprises report lifting their log volume visibility by just 6 percent over the past three years and forecast a meager 5 percent rise in the next three. By comparison, the best performers, particularly in the SMB segment, increased their log coverage by between 25 and 35 percent in the past three years and plan to accelerate those efforts over the next three.

Talent shortages and service offerings

An existing global cyber-talent shortage, com­pounded by the intensification of digital threats like ransomware during the COVID-19 pandemic, has created further growth opportunities for service providers as CISOs and talent partners struggle to fully staff their organizations. Structural dynamics are also boosting demand for vended solutions. As companies build out their protections, buyers increasingly expect products to come bundled with offerings that ensure both short-term services (for instance, implemen­tation) and long-term ones (ongoing security).

A global cybersecurity talent shortage means that IT leaders often have little choice but to do business with third-party service partners.

The bottom line? Across all segments, forecasted changes in allocated security spending is increasing as a percentage of services between internal and third-party services. So long as talent remains a problem, outsourced services will be essential for companies that need to support strong security outcomes.

Higher levels of customer engagement

Until recently, many organizations that required cyber protection were not fully engaged with the challenges they faced. Often, they saw the cost and complexity of action as greater than the need for it. Now, with attacks becoming more frequent, the risk–benefit equation has changed. With security and privacy concerns being elevated to the C-suite across industries, geographies, and enterprises whatever their size, both providers and investors have opportunities. We see potential for innovation in prices and bundles, geographic coverage, target customer groups, integration, and off-the-shelf analytics.

Providers can excel on four fronts

To gauge the market opportunity, McKinsey used a bottom-up model: an assessment of key players and validation against industry logic and our conversations with clients. We also surveyed 500 cybersecurity buyers and interviewed 50 market-leading vendors. The combined insights, tracked in McKinsey’s Cyber Market Map, show that spending on products and services from vendors is set to rise 13 percent annually up to 2025—a significant uptick from 10 percent growth over the past three to five years. Key changes to previous market forecasts include not only faster growth, with services increasing much faster than products, but also a significant opportunity in the SMB segment.

For providers, the message is clear. Current market dynamics give them a chance to boost their penetration of both existing accounts and the unvended space. This growth will be spurred by an evolving threat landscape and talent shortages—a gap of at least 600,000 in the United States alone. 8 Olivia Rockeman, “Hackers’ path eased as 600,000 US cybersecurity jobs sit empty,” Bloomberg, March 30, 2022. To maximize the opportunity, we see potential for action on four fronts.

Ride the coattails of the cloud transformation

Public-cloud migrations will continue to define enterprise technology strategies for the next several years (Exhibit 3). Providers (especially product providers) should thus consider not only accommo­dating but also specializing in hybrid and multicloud architectures.

Where cloud providers offer cybersecurity solutions, the tooling on offer in many cases is not a compre­hensive substitute to the capabilities of cybersecurity specialists—at least in the enterprise segment. Organizations that adopt multicloud strategies or maintain critical on-prem workloads will in all likelihood persistently need best-of-breed solutions. The challenges that vendors are expected to help resolve include ease of implementation, day-to-day ease of use, integration and coverage across environments, and agility and flexibility in attack environments. If information about an attack detected in one cloud provider environment is not conveyed immediately to other cloud environments, for example, that lapse would amount to a tooling failure.

Organizations that adopt multicloud strategies or maintain critical on-prem workloads will in all likelihood persistently need best-of-breed solutions.

In many security-related markets, characterized by large numbers of tools, entire categories of orchestration players (such as those that orchestrate security and the identity of users) have been created to simplify the combination of parallel processes. Antifraud programs, for instance, require so many different sets of tooling to manage different geographies that a new category has emerged to manage workflows. In another example, in the cloud, orchestration coordinates workflows and the deployment and management of data across multiple public and private clouds, software-as-a-service (SaaS) providers, managed data centers, and on-prem infrastructure enterprises. All of these demands for increased visibility are potential entry points for providers.

Finally, regulation also creates a cloud-related opportunity for providers. Highly regulated verticals are migrating to the cloud about four times more quickly than low-regulated verticals are. This could help unlock new markets, particularly in highly regulated Europe, and be a key differentiator for multinationals that must navigate complex cross-border data flows, local regulations and data sovereignty, and geopolitical issues that spike cyber and data risk.

Create a pricing model for the midmarket

Many cyber solutions are mispriced for SMBs. Larger organizations can pre-pay or buy in bulk to obtain volume discounts, but many SMBs and midmarket companies are less able to negotiate hard for these services. Large enterprises have an abundance of metrics, historical data, and reference points. SMBs and midmarkets, however, often lack information on how much they and others have spent. Consumption-based pricing models (for example, per gigabyte) can add flexibility but also risk: if an organization doesn’t know what good security looks like, will it burn through its budget just looking for needles in haystacks? Instead, customers increasingly reward vendors that use outcome-based or more “plannable” pricing models, such as per workload.

One cause of the pricing mismatch is simple economies of scale. SMBs and midmarket companies have a smaller base of employees over which to spread cyber-tooling costs, so they face a decision: either pay a disproportionate price per employee—by a factor of three to five or more than larger companies do, depending on the tooling category—or forego some security controls entirely.

Better automation, AI, and machine learning

The steepest innovation curve is for developing the brains of next-gen products and managed security services. Fully autonomous intelligent cyber-defense platforms (for example, end-to-end automated SIEM/SOAR 9 Security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) and security, information, and event management (SIEM). detection and response pipelines) are challenging to engineer and validate to the point where they are fully trusted by operators. Providers should therefore strive to enable high-fidelity assisted intelligence that makes human analysts more efficient be it through leveraging advanced analytics or building tight integrations with other security platforms (Exhibit 4).

Many next-gen algorithms for AI and machine learning (ML), while not yet ready for autonomy, are getting close. Rule libraries are increasingly refreshed from open sources and built on common standards, such as Yara. Eventually, one human being, operating as a remote or virtual resource to serve multiple companies, will reduce the cost of MDR solutions and boost the margins of providers.

To reach this target state of optimized low-cost services, managed-service providers can focus on the brains of next-generation security products by concentrating innovation in areas such as data source integration and neural/logic engines. Enhancing and building data source integrations could yield indirect revenue opportunities and widen access to larger ecosystems—for example, as part of an open extended detection and response (XDR) concept. Spreading investment in neural/logic engines across both cutting-edge AI and static rules libraries will ensure that R&D efforts are measurably productive.

Expand managed services and create a midmarket-friendly solution

Demand for full-service offerings is set to rise by as much as 10 percent annually over the next three years. Providers should thus seek to develop bundled offerings that take advantage of hot-button use cases. And they ought to focus on outcomes, not technology.

A potentially rewarding approach would be to adopt co-creative models with managed-service providers (MSPs) to build workbench solutions. This would require investments in R&D and development tooling (for example, APIs) that allow MSPs to connect your platform to theirs rather than the other way around. Partnering will make it possible to create centers of excellence, which will lead to faster implementation and more efficient operations. The resulting improvement in customer outcomes will feed into the performance metrics of providers, and a more robust service layer will create a runway to master product market fit.

Rather than the common laundry list approach, vendors should adopt a clear MSP partnership strategy. Where necessary, they should invest in building collaborative sales capabilities with their partners. (In several cyber-partner programs, 20 percent of the partnerships generate 80 percent of the partners’ revenues.) Finally, vendors must articulate industry-specific use cases with tweaks to their products’ user interfaces and user experi­ences, as well as potential MSP and partner channel sales and marketing.

Winning companies will work with SMB-focused channel partners and optimize their marketing. That approach could involve partnerships with small-business software providers (such as tax prep software and cloud email and storage) and with vertical SaaS providers (such as payroll management and point-of-sales services). In some cases, it will make sense to replatform offerings as lighter-weight SaaS-first solutions, catering to buyers already deep in the trenches of SaaS transformations in other enterprise applications and platform realms.

The continuing digitization of the global economy, ever-increasing numbers of cyberattacks, and regulatory pressure on companies to protect their data present cybersecurity providers with a compelling opportunity. Amid talent deficits and the desire to boost log visibility, SMBs and midmarket players in particular are focused on implementing more advanced solutions.

With billions of dollars of revenues set to flow into the market in the next three years, providers should seize the moment. That means optimizing engage­ment with the cloud, developing a pricing model for the midmarket, embracing innovation, and expanding managed-service offerings to create midmarket-friendly solutions. In short, it means finding productive combinations of product, price, and services that vendors can tailor to target segments and are flexible enough to scale. If the industry can meet these priorities, it can start to create the momentum that will increase its penetration across segments and put the $2 trillion prize in play.

Xumo 2024 FAST Report Reveals Shifting Entertainment Habits Toward Free and Easy Streaming

  • Share on Facebook
  • Share on Twitter
  • Share on LinkedIn

Key Takeaways

Philadelphia, PA

Xumo, together with FASTMaster Consulting, today released a new research report, 2024 FAST Market Update .

Taking an in-depth look at viewers’ engagement with free ad-supported streaming TV (FAST), the new report provides the industry, including content owners and advertisers, with meaningful insights into the role FAST plays in consumers’ evolving entertainment decisions. It offers insight into topics like who is watching, when and how much they watch, why they watch, and how FAST viewing compares to other major forms of entertainment.

The findings of this report underscore the increasingly important role FAST plays in today’s entertainment landscape, dispelling myths and highlighting the diverse, engaged, and growing audience that finds value in our free and easy streaming.

“As engagement levels during primetime rival other major forms of entertainment, it’s clear that FAST is becoming a part of people’s everyday lives,” said Stefan Van Engen, Vice President, Content Programming and Partnerships, Xumo.

Despite being a relative newcomer to the entertainment landscape, the findings reveal FAST is becoming a primary means of entertainment for today’s consumers, with a third of American adults saying they regularly watch FAST channels during peak primetime hours. Additionally, time spent watching FAST channels is on par with other forms of entertainment. Specifically, the average FAST viewer spends one hour and 40 minutes watching FAST channels in the evening, whereas a gamer typically spends one hour and 42 minutes playing video or mobile games during this same timeframe. Consumers also said they scroll social media for one hour and 53 minutes, while cable TV customers spend one hour and 58 minutes watching cable network programming.

This chart shows Early Evening and Evening minute totals for SVOD, Broadcast TV, Cable TV, Social Media, Video or Mobile games, FAST, and AVOD. SVOD and Broadcast TV had the highest totals with two hours and two minutes and two hours, respectively.

“There are many myths about FAST which are often bandied about by external onlookers, such as FAST viewers watch because they have no alternatives or they are a less desirable consumer for advertisers,” said Gavin Bridge, Chief Analyst, FASTMaster Consulting. “I am very happy that Xumo has sought to address this via research into who watches FAST, dispelling false narratives with facts and illustrating why FAST continues to grow and needs to be part of any marketer’s toolkit to maximize reach.”

Other findings of the report explore topics like the who, what and why of FAST viewing:

Who is watching

  • Pay TV customers watch more FAST than cord-cutters or cord-nevers: Nearly half (47%) of consumers that subscribe to a pay-TV service say they also regularly watch FAST. In comparison, 46% of cord-cutters report being regular viewers of FAST, while only 35% of cord-nevers say they do.
  • FAST viewers trend younger and more diverse. While 46% of the US. adult population is between the ages of 18 and 44 according to the U.S. census, 58% of FAST viewers fall within that range. Additionally, Black viewers represent 20% of FAST’s audience, compared to 14% of the U.S. population. Similarly, 23% of FAST viewers have Latino origins, compared to 19% nationally.

What they watch

  • FAST viewers over-index on news, movies and crime TV. Together, these genres represent 58% of total viewing hours on Xumo Play, but only account for 11% of total channels.

Why they watch

  • FAST is a reliable form of entertainment. Nearly 70% of FAST users say they can always find something to watch on free streaming channels.
  • FAST is becoming a top choice for many viewers. More than half of FAST users say it is one of their favorite forms of entertainment.

The data in this report is from a market research project Xumo commissioned with FASTMaster Consulting , which collected responses from 4,000 U.S. adults among varied age, gender and ethnicity groups between the third quarter of 2023 to the first quarter of 2024.
