Executive Summary:

  • Automation in market research will continue to evolve and accelerate.
  • Automation makes things faster, cheaper, and sometimes better.
  • Clients, not suppliers, determine quality – but suppliers need to ensure buyers can readily assess the quality of services.
  • Automation will result in more research being conducted, and a growth in evidence-based decision making, at a lower cost per project.
  • Automation will continue to generate winners and losers. Be an automation winner – lead by example and adopt innovation.
  • Clients often value speed above cost savings, as shown in interviews with Valspar and T-Mobile.
  • Ray PoynterMost people agree that the benefits of automation include doing more with less, doing it faster, doing it consistently, and sometimes achieving superior quality.
  • People’s fears surrounding automation are less focused, though it is generally accepted that more automation is inevitable.
  • We predict 40-60% of existing market research jobs will disappear over the next five to ten years. Roughly 20-30% new research jobs will be created.
  • Artificial Intelligence will have a major impact on market research over the next five to ten years, impacting areas like qualitative research, research with images/video, and creativity.
  • Increased automation will result in more business decisions benefiting from research.
