AMA Research is a commercial organisation, and we are unfortunately unable to provide students with access to report content free of charge, although we generally include an executive summary of each of our reports on our product pages and it’s also worth visiting our blog and historical press releases for more information.

Our reports are structured in a way that is designed to give you a full overview of the market and individual sections are in many cases not able to stand alone, we are therefore unable to sell individual sections. In addition we are unable to sell individual tables and charts, as our reports contain significant amounts of analysis and commentary on each market and sector reviewed, which complements the data presented in tables and charts.

AMA Research’s Reports

All reports are delivered as in PDF format as standard. We also offer MS Word, which is available to view or download via our Customer Portal.

All AMA Research market reports are researched and produced by an experienced member of our research team, with information for each report gathered from a wide range of secondary sources, as well as primary research.

Due to the high volume of reports published, we cannot provide a sample for each report. However, a sample report is available for you to view on all report pages.

The latest edition of our reports will always be the one displayed on the website, as well as previous editions. We generally update our reports every 2-3 years, but if you would like to know when a new edition is due, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Each of our reports provide an in-depth look into the market that is reviewed, and reports will usually contain analysis and data relating to market size; market structure; key products; product mixes; leading suppliers; distribution structure and key applications or market sectors.

You can always view the contents listing, including a full list of all charts and tables, for each individual report on our website, which will give you an idea of the structure of the particular report you are interested in.

Our report focus on B2B usage, therefore do not generally incorporate consumer data. All reports begin with an executive summary highlighting the key points from the report.
