Dealer Vertical Market Opportunity Analysis
Offered by InfoTrends to dealers, exclusively through BTA
Enhancing sales productivity, differentiation and maximizing individual markets are ultimate goals for today's independent office technology dealer. Understanding a dealer’s specific market dynamics by vertical or company size can provide lucrative opportunities for the dealer, but can be challenging. Gaining a greater insight into specific markets and the key verticals within their local markets or CBSAs* can help dealers make decisions regarding their leading targets for hardware, supplies and solutions.
InfoTrends is the leading worldwide market research and strategic consulting firm for the imaging, document solutions, production print and digital media industries. It provides insights and advice to help clients understand market trends, identify opportunities and grow their businesses.

*Core Based Statistical Areas (CBSA)
What is a CBSA?
Core Based Statistical Areas (CBSAs) consist of the county or counties or equivalent entities associated with at least one core (urbanized area or urban cluster) of at least 10,000 population, plus adjacent counties having a high degree of social and economic integration with the core as measured through commuting ties with the counties associated with the core. The general concept of a CBSA is that of a core area containing a substantial population nucleus, together with adjacent communities having a high degree of economic and social integration with that core. The term "core based statistical area" became effective in 2003 and refers collectively to metropolitan statistical areas and micropolitan statistical areas. The U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) defines CBSAs to provide a nationally consistent set of geographic entities for the United States and Puerto Rico for use in tabulating and presenting statistical data.
