MDM Analytics is the market intelligence division of Modern Distribution Management. We provide better visibility into industrial product markets by helping customers quantify demand by geography, customer type and product group. Our data helps identify current market and account penetration for additional sales opportunities.
MDM Analytics supports a wide range of industrial market information needs with standardized market reports, custom research projects and software tools. For ongoing research needs, we offer a subscription service with unlimited access to the MDM Analytics database for the U.S. and Canadian markets on more than 200 MRO/OEM industrial product classes. This allows your staff analysts 24/7 access to the MDM Analytics database at the ZIP/postal code level and the ability to create custom classes for analysis. It offers an ongoing tool to segment effectively by customer SIC and optimize sales and marketing efforts.
Rusty Duncan founded Industrial Market Information in 1986. MDM acquired the company in 2011 and changed the name to MDM Analytics in 2015. Duncan – whose grandfather started and grew an industrial distribution company in Minneapolis, MN – continues to serve as a consultant and advisor. The roots of the company go back to 1967, when the economic models were developed and refined from other economic sectors.
MDM Analytics offers data for more than 200 industrial MRO/OEM product groups. View the full list here.
Data sets and reports are delivered in Excel spreadsheet format. Click here to download sample reports.
Most data sets and reports are delivered within a few hours of request. Complex projects usually take no more than 24-48 hours.
MDM Analytics provides more standard research reports and data sets at a lower cost than any other source today. Visit our report pricing page for details.
The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) is the standard used by federal statistical agencies to classify business establishments for the purpose of collecting, analyzing and publishing statistical data related to the U.S. business economy. NAICS was developed under the auspices of the Office of Management and Budget and adopted in 1997 to replace the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) system.
We update our proprietary ratio models using the most recent government data, for which the standard is NAICS codes. However, most of our customers have retained SIC codes as the basis for their marketing analysis, so we deliver MDM Analytics data sets with 4-digit SIC format as the standard. We strive to meet the current needs of our customers and continually evaluate how the information is delivered to ensure that we do so.
MDM Analytics employs a proprietary statistical model using consumption ratios applied against both government and private databases. Over 25 years, we have analyzed end-user consumption patterns across all NAICS (formerly SIC) sectors for more than 200 MRO and OEM industrial products.
Our resources page includes free white papers and videos about using MDM Analytics data to develop market strategy and improve sales planning. You may also visit our Distributor Analytics blog for regular updates and tips on using analytics in your sales strategy.
