SHELTON, Conn., July 18, 2017 —The 44th annual American Marketing Association’s Gold Top 50 Report revealed the 2016 rankings of the largest market research firms based on revenue in the United States. SSI works with 49 of the top 50 firms listed in this report.

The AMA Gold Top 50 Report has been the industry standard for documenting trends in the global business of marketing research and the major players driving its growth. According to the report, the U.S. research industry maintained a strong annual growth rate with total revenue exceeding $11.58 billion for the 202 companies surveyed. In fact, the U.S. research industry has been significantly healthier than the U.S. economy.

“SSI is proud to work with the top-ranked market research firms,” said Michel Guidi, SSI’s chief customer officer. “As we celebrate 40 years in business, SSI prides itself on innovation, data quality and industry leadership.
