Additional Services

Construction industry data analysis and understanding the dynamic and diverse construction market in which your organisation operates is made more accessible through our mapping and customised dashboard services. You will be able to monitor those trends that relate to your business at a national, provincial or municipal level. Projects are geocoded on a monthly basis, giving you real-time access to current trends in the industry. To identify new business opportunities ahead of the market and to make highly informed decisions quickly, business leaders need to be able to access, evaluate and interpret data in real-time. Strategic dashboards and mapping add a new element to strategic planning by drastically saving you time and facilitating your ability to understand trend.

For this reason, an increasing number of organisations are realising the benefits of targeted industry analysis. Organisations need to improve their understanding of developments at a more micro level as national indicators are by no means a blue print for what is happening at a provincial level. Understanding provincial trends is therefore of great strategic importance to not only improve but also to maximise business performance.  Through the use of strategic tools such as customised economic and industry related dashboards and mapping, organisations can monitor trends effortlessly and effectively. There is no longer the need to read through endless reports or to decipher economic jargon.

Our data visualisation platforms are customised specifically for the client’s needs, no more sifting through irrelevant information that does not directly pertain to your business. Scientific studies show that a large majority of individuals learn more effectively through the use of images rather than having to read a 1000 word document, not only is it a more effective way of understanding trends as well as the environment, it also saves  time.



datamap Within the variety of data visualisation solutions that Industry Insight offers, one of them is the mapping service. Whether you are interested in the building or civil sectors, or roads or water, we can map it all. Whether you are interested in Western Cape or Gauteng we can provide maps of the data from our project database of construction activity, be it out to tender out or the value of projects awarded.

The mapping service acts as an additional level of analysis that is complemented by our publications. What the mapping does is that it allows the client to get a visual overview of construction in South Africa, or a specific province. This greatly contributes to the capacity of contextualising construction.

Our economists at Industry Insight travel all over South Africa doing presentations on the construction sector, be it about the latest budgets or a more general state of the construction industry, or a provincial overview, our economists present at conferences, meetings as well as expos. Please contact our offices should you require one of our economists to do a presentation at your event, or at your offices.

Customised research is available, subject to quotation.  This can be in the form of a report on a certain market, or a regression analysis based on your companies sales data to forecast sales of a specific company.  For further information please do not hesitate to contact us.
