Now the dust is settling somewhat after the recent surprising vote in UK parliament, it is as yet still unclear what will happen next with regards to Brexit. One thing is sure though – the deal that was reached in November is off the table in its current form. The first comments from the EU indicate that the European leaders are open for negotiations; however, it is highly unlikely that there will be major changes to the deal that is currently on the table. And given the current political chaos in Westminster, it is no longer unlikely there will be no deal at all.

The GRBN has released the 2018 Global Top 25 Report, an overview of the largest 25 research and data analytics companies in 2017. This year’s report showed an increase in revenue of 5.9%, in part driven by the extraordinary growth of just one company, Gartner Research (+33%). Without this player the Top 25 would have reported a combined growth of 3.7%, slightly lower than for 2016. All in all, total revenue increased by about US$ 1.5 billion in 2017, with unequal results across companies.
