Market Research and Analysis

Recent years have witnessed dramatic changes due to globalization and social media. This growth in global consciousness brought changes in the attitudes and preferences of consumers. Be it a commercial center, an airport terminal, or a transport service, consumers are consulted in their preferences not only on the type of services that they can avail of but also on the quality of such services. It is along with this context that the firm has involved itself in market research and consumer studies. The firm’s services include the design and implementation of market surveys, processing, data analysis, and interpretation. Such data provide valuable information to the operators of the concerned organizations to make them more responsive to the consumer’s needs. Market research studies are undertaken by the firm for the following:

  • Commercial centers
  • Tollway services
  • Bus and railway service supply and demand
  • Consumer research on shopping and food/beverage and other services at airport and other public transport terminal

Greenhills Center Traffic Masterplan Simulation Study (2019)

SMDI was tasked to develop a microsimulation model of Greenhills Center in San Juan City to identify the traffic bottlenecks in the study area and propose solutions to address these issues together with the planned redevelopment of the iconic shopping complex. This model is the 2019 base scenario that served as the foundation for all future traffic forecasts. Congestion was observed along Ortigas Avenue corridor causing queues to extend to the intersecting roads. i.e., Wilson, Conneticut and Club Filipino, which confirms what is happening on the ground.

Traffic Impact Study for the NSCR Extension – Nagtahan Link (2021)

This simulation model evaluated the traffic conditions during the construction period of the proposed NSCR Extension – Nagtahan Link by 2025. This scheme presented a scenario where the elevated segment of Paco – Santa Mesa Road connecting to Quirino Highway will be demolished and the bridge crossing Pasig River will be converted to one lane per direction to give way to the construction of the project. This model suggested that the changes in the infrastructure yielded minimal effect to Paco – Santa Mesa Road but congestion is still observed along the major thoroughfares.
