Improve Audience Targeting & Activation

Reach your most likely prospects for vehicles, motorcycles and RVs

Plateauing sales and a rising number of nameplates make it tougher than ever to maintain and grow market share. IHS Markit can help our automotive customers rise to that challenge by providing better audiences…audiences that go beyond who you already know. With over 20 years of vehicle history and over ~700 data sources mapped to 120 million US households, IHS Markit uses deep learning and artificial intelligence to predict future automotive buying behavior to drive actual purchases – now, and down the road.

With IHS Markit, vehicle marketers and their agencies can isolate and activate high performing audiences across off and on-line channels based on:

  • Return to market
  • Loyalty by manufacturer, brand, segment, body-style, or class
  • Garage composition
  • Income
  • Lifestyle
  • Custom affinities
