The trade in construction materials, products and tools is at the very core of the market USP has specialised in for several decades. The broad array of channels and parties through which these products move from manufacturers to the professionals that use them, include general, material and specialist wholesalers, but also hardware and DIY stores.
Over the past years we have seen new players like pure online shops enter the market, new channels like direct selling by manufacturers open up, and we have also seen the disruptive impact of the e-commerce trend on the field of B2B trade of construction materials and tools. In this ever-evolving and hugely competitive field of trade, knowledge of trends, purchase channels and of customer attitudes, preferences and journeys is invaluable.
And that is what we trade in: the knowledge of the market and trade channels that you need to successfully bring your products to market and stay ahead of the competition. Below you will find examples of clients we have worked with before and the types of studies we frequently conduct.

So what happened to orientation behaviour during the pandemic? To track the changes in orientation behaviour, we decided to focus on this topic in the European Architectural Barometer Q1 2021 report. The full report is out now and covers many aspects regarding the changes in orientation behaviour of European architects due to corona. As we track orientation behaviour regularly, we can clearly map out the changes in their behaviour and provide insights on their future orientation behaviour. This report covers 8 European countries and is based on 1,000 successful interviews with architects.
