Targeted market research for the Australian housing industry

Why commission us for tailored market research?

Think of us as your own team of economists. We’ll provide you with detailed, accessible and insightful research on any sub-sector or geography tailored to suit your needs.

Of course, we’re not just generalists. We focus only on construction industry research, and we have more than 60 years’ experience between us in that field, conducting both quantitative and qualitative studies. All our dedicated research is backed by a wealth of market intelligence, gleaned from HIA’s close contact with thousands of industry participants over more than a decade.

We can anticipate changes and trends before everyone else, because we spend a big part of every day talking with people from right across the spectrum of Australia’s construction industry.

Our team of specialists can help with: 

  • tailor-made research to your exact needs and budget
  • research based on the activities and behaviour of over 30,000+ industry professionals who are responsible for over 80% of Australia’s residential construction work
  • targeted data based on:
    • HIA membership location
    • business size
    • type of work
    • industry sector in which you operate
    • dwelling type
  • understanding market trends before they adversely affect bottom-line performance and shareholder value
  • staying ahead of competitors through more informed decision making
  • extracting the maximum return from your sales and marketing investment.

Meet the team

All HIA research is conducted and delivered by our team of research professionals with specialised industry and methodological expertise.

Our team has extensive experience in both quantitative and qualitative research which generates information and insights into the industry’s attitudes and purchasing behaviour.
