60 Years of Service

Founded by William H. Ducker in 1961 as a premier research and consulting firm, Ducker quickly became a valued partner to its clients through a strong focus on research and analytics in complex, industrial markets.  Without the aid of the internet or many of the digital tools available today, Ducker developed proven methodologies to acquire the most meaningful insights for executives backed up by time-tested analytical techniques that still hold true today and are respected by peers and clients alike.

As industries and the global economies evolved, so did Ducker’s footprint.  Decades before many of its competitors, the management team opened a network of international offices and developed unique regional competencies to better serve multi-national clients; as well as support growth mandates of local businesses throughout Europe and Asia.

Today, Ducker serves corporate and financial clients with bespoke market research, consulting and M&A transaction support services. The firm focuses on a variety of global industry sectors where business dynamics, supply chains, competitive landscapes and customer demands are complex. Ducker’s professional team of researchers, analysts, engagement managers and principals understands these complexities, and when combined with proven research and analytical methodologies, Ducker teams deliver unparalleled insights to drive business decisions and exceptional business outcomes.

A Strong Future

Through multiple economic cycles and recent pandemic events, the demand for Ducker services remains healthy and strong.  Like many businesses, the leadership at Ducker continues to evaluate unique strategies that drive value for our global teams, our valued clients and our shareholders.   Recently the Board of Directors and Senior Executive Team executed an important element of the growth strategy through a successful spin-off of the company’s subscription business (FrontierView).  This action will further enable the high performing research and consulting business to focus on its custom research, consulting and M&A transaction support services.

To better reflect the proven consulting business, the leadership team also launched a rebrand effort and is now known as Ducker Research and Consulting.    This new brand experience reflects a modern, growing consulting business which has put into place a strategy of service, sector and geographical expansion.  In a world saturated with less relevant data and information, Ducker will continue to build services and competencies that drive clarity and certainty for client success.

We look forward to sharing more about our new ventures, competencies and strategic progress throughout the global research and consulting industry.
