Visiongain energy reports are compiled using a broad and rich mixture of both primary and secondary information to produce an overall industry outlook. In order to provide our clients with the best product possible product, we do not rely on any one single source of information. Visiongain analysts not only interview market-leading vendors and industry experts where possible but also review a wealth of financial data and product information from a vast range of sources.

Secondary research - sources
The Oil & Gas Journal publication

Primary research – company interviews
Primary research interviews are often obtained from leading companies and other key industry experts in the energy sector in question. Where possible these interviews are obtained from a range of leading energy companies and cover a broad range of issues, from detailed contract details and discussion of technical information to insight into economic factors driving the sector and the expected sales growth.

The insight from the company interviews and other industry experts is used to help form a clear view of the key issues within the energy sector and provide insight into how the market is likely to grow globally, regionally and within which specific subsector or technology. The company interviews therefore underpin and inform our analysis and forecasting giving authority to our conclusions and market outlook.

Current market sizes are established by analysing hundreds of contracts from a multitude of sources using the bottom-up approach. Regional and national market size data and company market share data are also derived from a similar contractual analysis process. This mass of information from the secondary data sources and contract analysis are then combined with primary research insight from the interviews to develop the expected growth rate forecasts on a year by year basis. Drivers and restraints in the global, regional and national markets and submarkets are then used to develop market forecasts for each of the regional markets over a 10 year horizon and a global market forecast is thus formed.

Generally we aim to measure the main geographic regions or ten leading national markets, depending on a number of factors including how fragmented or consolidated the global market is and also whether the market can easily be demarcated according to country borders. E.g. spending on oil rigs in international waters by globalised oil companies is an example of where geographical regional markets make more sense than national country markets.

Visiongain believes this diverse approach, reinforced with the views of industry specialists and experts, produces an accurate and objective sectoral and regional analysis and provides a sounds basis for calculating market sizes and forecasting.

The entire body of secondary and primary research is then blended together to produce a cohesive research report which, due to its breadth of sources, produces an accurate, thorough and analytical overview of the energy sector in question.
