More than ever, companies need access to advanced quantitative tools, deeper forecast data, and more timely insights to help them track external macro factors and assess their impact on strategy and investments. Oxford Economics has developed a range of services and techniques to analyse demographic and economic trends, and their implications for consumer product manufacturers and retailers.
How we help
Support and assess
- Support internal strategic and operational planning with forecasts and models to explain and understand sales performance relative to economic and other fundamentals, inform budgets and strategy development.
- Identify new expansion opportunities by assessing the characteristics and future prospects of target locations and markets, as well as forecasts for demographic change and demand on a country, city, and sector basis.
Analyse and demonstrate
- Analyse changing consumer dynamics by directly comparing city-level consumer spending patterns to identify consumer hotspots and the largest markets for individual products and services.
- Demonstrate the economic impact or social value of organisations, to show how they contribute to economic prosperity, job creation and public finances.
Monitor and anticipate
- Monitor the macroeconomic environment for signs of economic downturn or increased activity that might signal a risk or opportunity.
- Assess and anticipate risks in markets around the world, carrying out scenario, event and policy impact analysis or business plan stress testing.
Global cities key themes 2022
How different will 2022 be for the world’s major cities, compared with 2021? Will it be a continuation of partial and often erratic recovery, or will there be more of a take-off? Will working from home fade away, and will tourists be back in force? Might macroeconomic worries, plus adaption to climate change, cloud the picture? And are the answers the same for all major cities, or will trajectories sharply diverge?
“We were drawn to working with Oxford Economics for its solid reputation and the strength of its research, and we’ve been particularly impressed with your ability to present this to governments and the media – it’s the reason we’d look for future opportunities to work together.”
