BDS Marketing Research is an independent and innovative market research consultancy specialising in the construction materials and waste sectors.

Originally established in 1989 by Julian Clapp, BDS undertakes the full range of marketing projects for clients. These include commercial due diligence, mergers and acquisitions, analysis and research of markets, prices and competitors, business expansion and product development. All research activity is overseen by Research Director, Andy Sales and his team.

Over nearly three decades, BDS has also developed a strong reputation for our portfolio of publicly available industry reports. These include annual estimated outputs and market shares for key sectors including aggregates, asphalt, ready mixed concrete, concrete products and cement. In addition, we publish individual specialist surveys, sector reviews and analysis on a periodic basis.

Our databases of companies and their activities are extensive. Planning activity is monitored on a continuous basis across all of the planning authorities in Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to keep information updated. Planning information is made available to subscribers through monthly reporting and our online portal.

BDS is well positioned to help you develop and achieve your operational and strategic goals through the application of our specialist skills and knowledge. The website will give an introduction to what we offer but, for a more complete discussion, please do not hesitate to contact the BDS team.
