How we can help.

Open source and secondary research provide access to an immense amount of information on consumer behavior and preferences in emerging markets. Yet there will never be a replacement for direct consumer and business surveys in the local language.
Mercado offers its clients the ability to carry out local surveys in target markets without ever leaving their headquarters - saving time, energy, and money. Conducting local surveys and primary research through Mercado's resources provides our clients with several added benefits, including:
Timely Reporting of Findings: secondary and open source research is often dated, resulting in inaccurate analysis, conclusions, and decision-making
Geographically Relevant Responses: primary research conducted in the target market - and only the target market - ensures the most accurate intelligence for our clients
Elimination of Translation Errors: by leveraging local language and analytical resources, Mercado maximizes available insights and reduces the risk of linguistic and socio-cultural translation errors
Local Partner Due-Diligence
Entering a new market can be a stressful time for anyone, whether they be a seasoned multinational corporation or a small to medium-sized company poised for growth. Mercado's international network offers its clients the ability to informally review, vet, and compare local partners across an array of industries.
Spend some time with us to develop a set of local partner requirements, and we'll work with our local team to identify the most appropriate local partners for your business. Our research and analysis team has experience conducting all of the following:
Due diligence research reviews, and reports on prospective local partners for joint ventures (JV), acquisitions, or mergers
Distributor identification and support - helping our clients to maximize their market presence by identifying the most capable, and well-suited local distributor to take their products to market
