Q: What’s BCC’s reputation in the corporate world? 

A: Here’s what some of our corporate members say about using BCC as their market research vendor: 

Our experience with BCC has been very positive. From the moment BCC received our inquiry, they worked with us to meet our budgetary needs while ensuring we would receive the necessary research output we were looking for. The research results provided were accurate and concise, providing enough information without being repetitive and wordy. We are hopeful that this research will help Richman Chemical to grow our customer base and expand into new markets. We are pleased with the research conducted by BCC and would recommend BCC to others who are starting new ventures into market research. 

--Richard Jasinki, Richman Chemical 

I had been working with various market report vendors. Some of them were not providing valuable and proved content reports. BCC Research however was always setting the benchmark with the quality of their report material and I am taking advantage of this in my strategic marketing function. I did recommend them to business partners when I was asked for a trustful report vendor. 

-- Matthias Schulze, Coherent 

Utilized BCC Research for market analysis quite often through the University of Texas at Austin - Red McCombs School of Business MBA program. Their market reports are top notch! 

--Tyler Smith, Baylor Genetics 

BCC Research makes us more prepared to discuss with our stakeholders and more able to apply for funding, especially from the sizable but competitive EU programmes. We are very pleased with BCC, its report launch frequency and quality—do not lose the pace! 

-- Leading Innovative Company in the Nordic Countries 

The study conducted by BCC Research met our expectations and enabled us to make progress on our project internally. The team is very responsive and kept us aware on the progress. Many exchanges between BCC and us have allowed to readjust the scope of the study, to keep it as close as possible to our first requirement, to lead to an improved final deliverable. It is also worth mentioning that the study was delivered on time. Using BCC Research is a good experience and cost-effective solution that I would recommend. 

--Key Player In Fermentation Industry 

Q: How does BCC develop market research reports?  

A: We’re working on a separate blog to answer this question, but here is a summary of how we develop our reports: 

BCC’s adopts an approach called conscious publication. What is conscious publication? It means that we choose and publish report topics based on feedback from our customers, partner organizations such as technical and professional associations, and experts within BCC. We also analyze usage data within our library and tweak our report topics accordingly. In short, being a member or partner with BCC also means to have a voice in what we publish. 

Every year, BCC publishes close to 400 full-length reports that run 100-300 pages and 45-50 Innovation Spotlights that run 8-10 pages. Our team of analysts have decades of industry experience. They know how to evaluate their industry from a business point of view and communicate their findings to multiple audiences. 

When our Editorial team finalizes our publication schedule, they assign report topics to our analysts, who conduct primary and secondary research, including interviews with expert sources, exclusive market data and direct observation. Analysts compile their data into reader-friendly tables and graphs, written analysis. Once the report is written, it goes through BCC's extensive fact-checking and proofreading process and is submitted to our publishing team who makes the report live in the library. 

Q: My office/company doesn’t have the budget for BCC.  

 A: This is a common concern and BCC has several ways to get market intel to you. 

  1. BCC memberships are not one-size-fits-all. No two organizations are the same and no two of our memberships are the same. Your membership with us includes only the amount of coverage that suits the needs of your office or organization. 
      
  2. Take advantage of free library access. For a period of time, you and your users can try out the BCC library to see if it’s a good fit—search for your desired topics, read our reports and get a feel for our library. 
     
  3. Give custom a try. If our regular 5-year market forecasts aren’t what you can budget right now, we can design affordable and customized market data that will help you make business decisions; gain intel on specific market segments and prepare for the post-COVID19 economy. Just tell us what you’re looking for—tables, graphs, competitor analyses—and we’ll make it happen. 
      
  4. Purchase access to our Innovation Spotlight library. This is ideal for offices and organizations that want market intel and aren't ready to invest in a comprehensive market research resource. Innovation Spotlights are micro reports that analyze high-growth markets, the people and companies behind them and industry trends. For a period of time, we’re offering the following Spotlights for FREE:

           Innovation Spotlight: ESS: Flow Batteries
           Innovation Spotlight: Kraton: Biodegradable Polymers

    5. Subscribe to our blog. Every week, we post high-quality blogs that provide intel  on a wide variety of markets, research tips and other resources. Our most popular blogs for corporate audiences include:
