New research from global market research company Euromonitor International identifies the four key global trends impacting market research through 2030.

Automation and DIY tools will help deliver on-demand insights, eliminating manual work for researchers and allowing clients to explore data independently. Big data integration will shift the market research process from capturing the “what” to determining the “why.” Increased access to new data sources means transparency in data collection and methodology is imperative to become a trusted partner in which researchers educate clients and work toward actions beyond solely insights.

“New tools, inputs and best practices will blur with increased use of market research to speed decision making and stay competitive,” said Zandi Brehmer, head of client innovation at Euromonitor, in a news release.
