We have a team of economists and consulting specialists with extensive experience of supporting numerous trade associations. Tailored analysis based on their knowledge and expertise, along with our forecasting solutions, will help you better understand your challenges and enable you to meet your goals and support your members.
How we help
We help trade and member associations understand what’s happening within their industry and the economic and political drivers of change. And then help them prepare for and influence what’s coming tomorrow.
The focus of associations is to become the industry’s unified voice and promote the common interests of the various stakeholders. In addition to providing quantitative measures of success, our consulting experts can also help assess the economic and social impact of the association’s activities.
Acting as a knowledge hub
Our global economic and industry forecasts covering 200+ countries and 100 sectors help associations understand the latest market trends in detail. In addition, industry experts work with associations to build their industry’s central knowledge base and develop research and investigation skills as required. All this enables associations to provide timely and insightful advice and information to members.
For many trade bodies, becoming a trusted adviser and partner to governments is key to effecting the changes members are looking for them to drive on their behalf. Our consulting specialists can help you establish your bona fides by proving your sector expertise and building your suite of influencing tools. Dependent on your goals, that may include whitepapers, infographics, tailored analysis reports, and an extensive media presence.

Beer's global economic footprint
Commissioned by the Worldwide Brewing Alliance, this first-of-its-kind study investigates the beer sector’s footprint across 70 countries, which account for 89% of global beer production
“The team worked with Oxford Economics on a global analysis of our entire industry, a project which was both sizeable in scope and sizeable in the impact it had on our advocacy and communication programs. The project yielded outstanding analysis of the global reach our industry has around the world, and produced a number of thought leadership pieces and case studies that supported this analysis. We saw impressive media coverage resulting from the study. For this project, the Oxford Economics team proved to be a true partner.”
