Sometimes I am quite overwhelmed by Google search results which constantly pumping press release about markets sizing/forecasting from newly published research reports from a raft of untraceable companies.
Some of these press releases are about quite niche topics which surprised me whether there would be any buyers for such research. Surprisingly, there is also very thin content available under the report ToC. Sometimes it feels that the ToC can fit any topic or industry as they all seem generic and superficial.
I would not be worry where the company is located as companies are now outsourcing from around the world. However, my main concern is how these companies can publish hundreds of reports, of about 100 pages, on a monthly basis.
Do they know the market? Do they follow proper research methodologies? What are the techniques they use for forecasts? Do they spend quality time on each report? Is it worth taking the risk to spend a few thousand dollars on such a report?
If anyone encountered such companies, please share your experience.
