About CM Research


CM Research is an independent research house. We provide global thematic research in the Technology, Media and Telecoms (TMT) sectors. Our focus is on disruptive technologies: how will they unfold; which industries will be impacted; and who will be the ultimate winners and losers. Our clients include institutional investors, family offices, corporations, governments and consultancy houses. We have an established track record of identifying major investment themes before mainstream researchers.

Our core research product SYNC. is produced fortnightly and takes an in-depth look at individual technology  themes. Our bi-annual "Global TMT Trends" report consolidates these themes into a comprehensive global sector outlook for the technology, media and telecom industries.
