SBDCNet new market research reports
The University of Missouri Extension Business Development Program is proud to present services that positively impact the lives of Missourians, including the Missouri Small Business & Technology Development Centers (MO SBTDC). This program provides professional business analysis and consultation, access to technology resources and educational training seminars on a variety of business topics. The MO SBTDC is in turn part of a national network called America’s SBDCs (ASBDC), partially funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration.
ASBDC has resources for counselors and small businesses alike, such as SBDCNet. This site serves as a national information clearinghouse serving the ASBDC network and America’s diverse small business community.
What’s your line of business?
Landscaping services? Janitorial, coffee shop, daycare? A bakery, maker of beef jerky, bicycles, biodiesel, book publishing? (And that’s just the Bs.) SBCDCNet’s market research reports cover trends, startup costs, growth and potential earnings, market statistics, customer demographics, recent articles, links to relevant trade associations and much more.
For example: The worldwide gardening and outdoor living market, including landscaping services, garnered almost $220 billion in 2016. “As the world becomes more urban, global interest in green spaces — including trees, lawns, flowers and hedges — is increasing in cities across the globe, driving demand for landscaping services,” says the report. It adds that smaller companies can compete with larger ones, partially because big companies operate mainly through local branches or offices.
SBDCNet provides market research services to the SBDC Network of Small Business Development Centers, including the MO SBTDC. If you are a prospective or existing small business owner receiving business counseling services from a MO SBTDC business development specialist, we can access a broad range of financial, market and demographic research reports, even reports customized to your specific business and geographic location.
