At B2B International, we focus on those companies making components that are assembled into mechanical or electromechanical finished products, giving our clients the insight they need through our engineering market research expertise in this area.
Our roots at B2B International are founded out of the engineering industry with a history starting in the rubber, wire and metal rod manufacturing industry. The engineering industry is an unusual vertical in that it spans many other industry sectors, from food and drink and pulp, paper and packaging through to pharmaceuticals, chemicals, oil & gas and manufacturing. With our many years of experience it is probably no surprise that we are experts in the industry having carried out engineering market research looking at diverse markets ranging from train components, bearings and turbogenerators to centrifugal pumps, boilers and packaging machinery.
As a mature vertical, the engineering industry comprises sectors with good trade associations and there is a significant amount of published data available. However, most of our engineering market research work is carried out assessing the market size, market shares and the route to market, and we have carried out a number of studies that seek out new markets in new geographic locations for new engineering products.
A global leader in the manufacture of highly engineered critical components asked us to examine the opportunities in energy recovery systems (ERS). These ERSs can be used wherever there is loss of energy caused by a pressure drop or a fall of water.
With our in-depth understanding of the sector and through a focused study of a large number of geographies, we were able to show our client where the opportunities lie globally, focusing on desalination plants, the oil and gas industry, and waste water treatment plants.
We were also able to demonstrate the alternative products that can be used in energy recovery, showing how these markets can be exploited in many developing parts of the world.
