A global paint manufacturer was looking to benchmark their sales against market projections for the US with scenarios to capture impacts on outlook due to COVID-19.
IHS Markit developed market size of paint for commercial building applications. As a model enhancement, we applied alternative scenarios from our US macro optim and pessim perspectives for forecast drivers of paint demand. Additionally, we provided quarterly frequency data to better capture turning points in the economy over the next two years in the outlook. Finally, we added a sales forecast that mirrored the commercial building application definitions so client could benchmark performance and assess market share movement in the forecast.
The results are a baseline measure of paint demand across the most critical part of their business portfolio. The insight from these models rolls up to C-Suite for setting corporate guidance.
IHS Markit conducts the market size and growth research for the American Rental Association and the European Rental Association and has engaged with a number of construction equipment OEMs to analyze and forecast their markets.
A construction equipment dealer wanted to assess the competitive landscape and identify opportunities for its Finnish rental operations.Solution
IHS Markit provided a holistic view of the rental equipment market, providing an assessment of the country’s macroeconomic environment and sector dynamics (i.e. construction, mining, agriculture, etc.). After assessing the underlying drivers, IHS Markit analyzed the equipment market, broken down by key players and equipment types (i.e. earthmoving, power systems, access).
Our findings were leveraged to build a strategic 3-year plan for the development of rental activity.
An international equipment manufacturer wanted to assess the competitive landscape and identify opportunities for its French air compressor operations.
IHS Markit conducted a two-fold study, assessing the size and dynamics of the specific French equipment markets, broken down by product groups, and of the main end markets, broken down by key sectors, including history and forecasts with a 5-year horizon. This was supported by an analysis and forecast of main macroeconomic data and sectoral factors, leveraging our in-house market intelligence products.
Our findings were leveraged to assess the performance of the client compared to the market and to set objectives for a 3-year action plan.
An international engineering company was considering increasing its project portfolio in Pakistan’s power sector, taking advantage of government need to increase power capacity via the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model. The client wanted to understand the macroeconomic and industry context, any political risks (especially given impending elections), and how these might interact to affect power sector prospects.
IHS Markit provided a compr ehensive assessment of the existing power sector, with a focus on major power consuming industries and their outlooks. IHS Markit also analyzed previous PPP projects for success or failure and the rationale for that outcome. IHS Markit also outlined expected government actions based on potential election outcomes, and the impact of those actions on PPP contracting as well as Pakistani fiscal and monetary outlooks. IHS Markit made explicit observations on potential risks as well as the potential paths to minimize those risks.
Our work involved multiple C-suite meetings with the conclusion that the client did not have the appetite for the potential risks given potential project finances.
