Market Analysis

Market Analysis

RDN offers a broad spectrum of expertise and experience in market analyses within a variety of industries. Our analyses have been used to inform private and public policy and development decisions committing billions of dollars.

We have prepared housing market and requirements analyses that assess housing conditions in communities serving Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, and other government agency installations to determine the need for the Federal government to provide housing directly to its personnel. These are particularly important in the military sector as the services continuously rebalance their programs and reallocate resources both domestically and overseas. These market analyses project the extent to which local housing markets can provide housing meeting defined standards for location, cost, size, and quality, and conversely determine those instances in which the market would fail to provide the needed housing. Our work in this area has assisted the Federal government in focusing billions of dollars in housing investments and privatization actions.

Our expertise in cost-effective data collection and market analysis has been utilized in collecting land use and cost data to determine market rate land use fees for the US Forest Service; performing a market analysis and forecast for a technology startup that was seeking to create a new internet service based on recent software advances; developing a game-theory framework for estimating upper and lower bounds of a potential market for use in development of business plans and obtaining venture capital financing; a post-Hurricane Katrina market assessment for the US Navy, and the accomplishment of hundreds of military installation-specific housing market analyses worldwide for our Federal clients.
