It is an integral part of its growth strategy to help clients leverage the power of AI, technology and big data at speed and scale to uncover emerging trends.
The company is also investing in wider solutions covering creative and digital testing, concept and innovation testing through the Kantar Marketplace platform. Launched in 2020 in India, Kantar Marketplace is a market research platform that empowers insights professionals, marketers and agencies to build meaningfully different brands with speed and agility. It is the only market research platform with solutions that have been independently validated to predict sales and brand growth.
In India, Kantar Marketplace is gaining traction with its innovation suite in concept and pack testing.
