If you need quantitative data for your target market and would like to speak to us about the services we offer, get in touch with our team.



Examples of quantitative market research

Quantitative market research is all about capturing numbers or data that can be quantified. For example, ’50 percent of respondents to our survey say they plan to replace your product in the next year’. Ouch.

Qualitative data qualifies what the respondents feel about a product. ‘Why are they buying a new product?’ ‘What would need to happen for them to keep yours?’ These sorts of questions are better asked one-on-one, to smaller groups where you know the respondent is within your target market and knows your brand.

Some research methods like user testing or interviews may gather both quantitative and qualitative data in one session. Others like surveys (quant) and focus groups (qual) sit firmly in one camp or the other.


Analysing market research data

In addition to gathering information, part of any market research is analysing the data. What do the figures reveal or forecast about people’s behaviour, tastes and habits? And how can that be used to influence your product, marketing plans, and even your organisation’s future? Should you focus your investment in a certain area because of clear trends in your data, for example?

Part of Acumen’s success is because of the way our quant team works. We do all of our quantitative market research in house. Our fieldworkers sit alongside our data team, to ensure each project receives the full attention it deserves.

This close collaboration across disciplines allows us to deliver meaningful insights throughout the project, regardless of your budget or timescale.
