What is brand market research?
Brands are not defined just by the products or services they offer. Every brand has its own objective, goals, and growth targets. To achieve these goals, businesses must understand their brand perception. Assessing a brand’s perception requires brands to analyze and understand the needs of the larger customer base and the audience it caters to. This very fact necessitates businesses to understand how their communications are perceived across markets. Through its brand market research solutions, Infiniti aims to help businesses understand market dynamics and gain an edge through objective, insight-based ideas, recommendations, and business plans.
Product manufacturing companies often start the value creation process from a functional standpoint. At the same time, service-oriented companies will start from the opposite end of the spectrum and focus on creating a customer-centric business plan. With a similar objective, a leading semiconductor packaging firm based out of Canada approached Infiniti to conduct a brand market research study and analyze factors impacting growth. Apart from tackling negative perception barriers, the client wanted to leverage brand market research insights to formulate suitable sales strategies and growth plans.

Given the high competition and dwindling economy, many semiconductor packing companies are struggling to grow. “A rigorous rethinking of brand strategy can help create a business plan to uncover new opportunities and turn them into real revenue,” says Infiniti.
Our client, a leading manufacturer of semiconductor packaging solutions, had recently acquired few brands to support their portfolio expansion needs. Since its inception, the semiconductor packaging company has been a pioneer in efficient packaging, offering innovative packaging services and pursuing new digital business models. Having acquired many of its brands, not all were aligned with the core objectives and company’s vision. Since their overall brand affinity was very different from the one perceived, they wanted to formulate a business plan to enhance the brand reach and drive profitable growth.
To succeed, the client needed to properly align all the brands under its portfolio while still emphasizing each brands’ strengths. As a result, conducting in-depth brand market research to understand market conditions, the impact of market disruptions, and how the conditions evolve was crucial for the client. They approached Infiniti to develop a custom brand market research solution to align their brands with the brand promise – Innovation and Agility.
