Research Process

Engage with industry stakeholders: the first stage is to engage with industry stakeholders to discuss and understand their needs from a research project. This process helps to create the desired data specifications and core deliverables.

Primary data collection: once the project scope is agreed, PMI seeks to collect sales data directly from OEMs under NDA agreement. Data directly submitted to PMI forms the basis of our market size calculations and ensures accurate market sizing estimates.

Discussion with OEMs and technology providers: alongside data collection, PMI seeks to engage senior executives in discussion around their perspectives on market growth dynamics. These include executives working within a strategy, market intelligence, product management as well as sales & marketing functions.

Secondary research: data is collected from secondary sources including financial reports, customs trade data, government institutions and regulators. This data is used to augment the data reported directly from OEMs to help validate market data points and assumptions.

Delivery and on-going analyst support: alongside the core deliverables, project delivery includes a presentation to highlight the key findings of the research, followed by a Q&A session to answer customer questions. Once the data and report are delivered, analyst support is provided to help customers maximise value from the project.


Delivery of market data is expected to occur during Q1 2021.
