Research and data

SJB Research produces high quality research reports on near field communication (NFC) technology, systems and markets. Many hundreds of hours of research and writing go into each report, but each one costs less than a day’s time with a consultant.

That’s because our reports our designed to be read by a wide audience so that the high cost of production can be underwritten by multiple clients each making a relatively small contribution. In this way we are able to give you substantial data and expertise that you can put to work in your business right away — for just a fraction of the cost of doing the work yourself or hiring a consultant.
