IPA Insight Centre

Whether you need help with a new business pitch, market research advice or an internal brainstorm, you’ve come to the right place.

If you have come across some useful industry stats recently, the likelihood is that it probably came from us. We are the industry's intelligence unit. With a wealth of premium data and analysis on brands and consumers at our fingertips.

If you are looking for help with a new business pitch, market research advice or an internal brainstorm, you’ve come to the right place. The insights we'll give you have the potential to put your agency at a real competitive advantage. And it won't cost you a penny.

We have a dedicated team of consumer research and industry specialists led by Damian Lord. We use premium strategic resources with direct access to cutting edge data on consumer markets, consumer behaviours, industry sectors, advertising trends and expenditure. This includes IBISWorld, Euromonitor International, IRN Research, GWI, Foresight Factory, among many others. And we already have the licensing agreements in place to share selected information.

The questions fielded to the team are wide ranging. For example:

  • How have savings habits changed in the wake of the Cost of Living crisis?
  • What are the main influences when choosing a mortgage provider?
  • What is the market for alternatively fuelled vehicles?
  • Can you share any case studies of challenger brands in this market?
