SME Market Watch
Our regular reports on the world of SMEs
Our Research Department, in collaboration with private and academic research centres and using the most advanced technological tools available, describes and analyses markets, sectors and phenomena, offering information and interpretations useful for understanding the economic-productive situation in Italy.
From production processes to design, from maintenance to logistics, from food to cars and from components to machinery: these are the themes of the ten regional stages of the Innovation Days 2021, organised by Il Sole 24 Ore, to which Banca Ifis contributes with sector studies on the topics covered.
This journey in the world of SMEs will take a year and will involve eleven topics and the interviewing of over 500 companies every month to tell about the new strategic and organisational measures put in place following the impact of the health and economic crisis on the market, generating new business models in the process. By listening to target companies in the ten typical production sectors of “Made in Italy”, we will be able to prepare detailed reports and infographics to contribute to the ongoing debate on the strategies and managerial priorities of the Italian industrial-economic ecosystem.
A close eye on specific sectors to understand their evolution, anticipate developments and intuit the opportunities they have to offer. The sectoral analyses of our Research Department have proven invaluable for all operators in the supply chains and a reliable way to discover the riches and best qualities of the Italian economy.
What trends will drive economic development? What challenges will SMEs have to face in order to achieve stable growth? The periodic Market Watch observatory answers these questions and has established itself – over time – as an authoritative voice in support of companies that want to face the market with awareness.
A complex market such as that of non-performing loans requires knowledge, specific analyses and predictive ability that only a player active in the sector for many years such as Banca Ifis can claim to have. This is why we were the first to approach this market through our NPL Market Watch which regularly contributes to the dissemination of key data for interpretation of the sector and of its processes and performance.
