  • Demographical Studies

    The data set is Fernridge propriety data that is created and maintained in the Fernridge Data CentreThey apply various methodologies to determine the disposable income range of each dwelling by using property values. In many cases clients approach us wanting to know if a particular retail space will be viable for their desired needs. In these cases, determining the market size and who your competitors are in a particular catchment area is required. So, if you are in the market and what to know what your market size is and who your competitors are in a specific location, we can help by developing a Demographical Market Area Analyses Study through a internationally recognised world-class Demographical Market Research brand in South Africa. this study report will tell you exactly what the market size in spending value is, who your competitors are and whether there is “space” for the type of business you wish to open. We always say, rather spend a few thousand rands in this type of study to see if the market is big enough, and loose a few thousand rands if it turns out against you, than taking a massive risk in opening a store and failing because you did not know the market is not big enough for your type of business. We recently partnered up with their service offering to enable our clients to afford these type of studies without the need of excessive capital investment required to obtain such report. You can now obtain such a study through SA Biz Plans from as little as R3500. Total Retail Market Size for 17 different retail categories. This model enables the user to determine turnover forecast and potential size of a proposed new retail outlet. The data set is unique in the sense that we provide household count, type dwelling, income classification and retail expenditures for 17 retail categories – all displayed geographically using maps and aerial photography. Information is immediately made available and can be exported for further use.
