About The Freedonia Group
The Freedonia Group was formed in 1985 when Bill Weiss, previously the Market Research Director of Predicasts, Inc., which he co-founded in 1960, hired five former employees of Predicasts to start a new industry market research firm.
From its original five employees, the Freedonia Group has grown to a staff of about 100 in its main headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio, and a satellite office in Beijing, China.
Today, Freedonia carries on the tradition of excellence first established by Bill and refined over many decades of conducting industry market research analyzing global markets.
At Freedonia, our mission is to provide our clients with unbiased and reliable industry market research and analysis to help them make important business decisions.
Freedonia delivers its market research in the form of off-the-shelf published research (Industry Studies and Freedonia Focus Reports) that may be accessed by the general public and through our wholly owned subsidiary, Freedonia Custom Research, Inc. by way of custom market research projects that are contracted for on behalf of, and for the exclusive use of, a single client.
Our Variety of Research Options
Our off-the-shelf published research comes in two forms – our in-depth Industry Studies and our less detailed, compact Freedonia Focus Reports. Our in-depth Industry Studies are our flagship product, and our only product for the first 20 years of business. An Industry Study is generally 300 to 500 pages in length and includes market size, market share, product segmentation, market segmentation, important industry trends, a discussion of industry structure, and profiles of the top 30 or 40 participants in the industry.
Our Freedonia Focus Reports are necessarily less detailed than our industry studies and generally range between 20 and 30 pages in length. They provide a more general view than our Industry Studies but are a great way to get up to speed on the basics of an industry fast and can form the basis of an affordable subscription program.
For clients who are in need of very specific market research information that isn’t necessarily covered in our off-the-shelf research, Freedonia also provides the opportunity to contract for exactly what is needed. Freedonia Custom Research, Inc. conducts the necessary research on behalf of the client and then delivers the findings to the client for the client’s exclusive use. So whatever your needs, Freedonia has the right solution to fit your requirements and your budget.
Freedonia serves clients in more than 80 countries including:
- More than 90% of the manufacturing companies among the Fortune 500
- Leading global investment banks, venture capital and private equity firms
- The top global management consulting firms
- Government agencies
- Leading universities and business schools around the globe
Our analysts are smart, hardworking, curious, funny, and people that you would like to work with. Backgrounds are varied. Many have MBAs or graduate degrees in Economics; others have graduate degrees in more specific areas, such as Chemistry or Polymer Science.
Our analysts are smart, hardworking, curious, funny, and people that you would like to work with.
One of our analysts was a Teen Champion on Jeopardy and was invited back recently to participate in the Tournament of Champions. Another analyst was a lifeline on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire (BTW, he got the question right).
But the common denominator among all of our analysts is that they take their jobs seriously and work hard to deliver the most reliable market research to our clients.
