What We Do

What type of research programmes does IMRAS offer?

We package our information in two types of formats for our clients:

  • Private client (or custom designed) reports
  • Multiclient reports (“off the shelf” or “syndicated” type of reports)

IMRAS runs a wide range of its reports in this multiclient format.

What does IMRAS mean by a multiclient report?
  • The research results are packaged and made available for sale on a subscription basis to any company that has an interest in that market/industry/product.
  • These reports are updated approximately every two or three years.
  • Since costs are shared across the various subscribers, IMRAS is able to undertake large scale surveys, offering clients a superior set of highly accurate results.
  • Furthermore, IMRAS is renowned for the depth of its reporting, with each report covering a wide range of issues and market facts, with indepth commentary and strategic overviews in its summaries.
  • The fees charged to subscribers are just a fraction of the cost of the total studies, with other subscribers cross sharing the total cost burden.
  • A large number of the reports have been running for over 20 years now, and provide core information to clients which is otherwise not available from any other source in Australia.
  • Fundamentally, these reports rely upon results from major Australian wide survey programmes, although they may well include a compact review of other relevant publicly available information. From our clients’ perspective they often become the “industry bible” regarding the key dynamics of that marketplace.
  • While each subscribing client will receive the same research information, often IMRAS will conduct a parallel study for a particular client so that they can benchmark their clients, their businesses etc against the wider market as a whole.
  • Also, for a small extra fee, we offer subscribers the chance to add on specific questions (omnibus style) for their own confidential purposes.
Why should I consider buying one of IMRAS’s multiclient reports?

IMRAS has had a very long term involvement in these multi client studies (especially the automotive sector), and so our clients are able to benefit in a number of ways, especially from:

  • The vast wealth of knowledge IMRAS has now accumulated regarding these markets
  • IMRAS’s unique position of knowing and regularly communicating with all the key participant companies across these markets, and
  • IMRAS’s role as “caretaker” of large databases of information, often on an extended longitudinal basis dating back 20 years.
How can IMRAS help in solving our specific research needs?
