Market Research and Analysis

Whenever entering a new market outside of Denmark, it is vital to get a good and thorough understanding and comprehension of the distribution cycle, supply and demand and general potential within a specific field of interest. A market analysis is a good way to be introduced to the possibilities and challenges that surrounds the market relevant to your specific product.   

Depending on your needs, we conduct market research and analysis in order to give you the best possible information.

Partner Search and Identification

Identification of a partner in the UAE market will most likely consume a large share of your resources in terms of energy, money, and time. To a great extent, success and sustainability of a business project depends on the local business partner’s ability and will to make business. It is therefore important for a company to find the right business partner abroad.

Identification of a partner begins with you and your company defining the criteria which are pivotal for your choice of partner in the UAE. The Trade Council can assist you in advancing the criteria. The criteria will be defined on the basis of your company’s ambition, mission, vision, business strategy, and if needed, it can also include the Public Affairs and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) when forming the criteria for your partner search.
On the basis of the criteria defined, the Trade Advisors at the Trade Council will conduct your partner search and offer assistance within the following areas:

  • Setting up your partner criteria
  • Partner profile
  • Desk- and field research
  • Screening of potential local business partner(s)
  • Presentation of business idea, products, or projects
  • Initial dialogue with local business partner(s)
  • Indicative analysis of business options
