Introduction & Scope

Marketing organizations are developing new methodologies and mechanisms to capture the attention of consumers in an increasingly cluttered physical and virtual world of information and entertainment. Increasingly the focus of such new developments is on neuromarketing. Neuromarketing combines psychology, neuroscience, and economics to help marketers better understand consumer behavior. Neuroscientific technologies are used in order to understand the consumer motivations and emotions and to study how the brain is physiologically affected by advertising and marketing strategies. Neuromarketing uses leading new technological approaches (user-interfaces, applications and software) which allow companies to better understand consumer decision-making and tailor marketing practices, products and services to their needs. These new technologies are providing a growing market for hardware and software manufacturers. While the market for specific neuromarketing technologies is nearly $21 million, the area is driving additional expenditures in market research, totaling more than $29 billion, and innovations in devices such as wearable technologies to measure consumer activity. The opportunity for neuromarketing technologies will grow as they become more widely adopted and business models evolve to better serve the needs of the market research industry.

The goal of this market report is to evaluate the opportunity for technology providers driven by the neuromarketing market, which is an emerging market. The report evaluates recent technology developments, growth drivers, industry challenges and market trends in neuromarketing. For greater clarity, and since it is an emerging market, it is important to develop an estimated forecast for the global market from 2015 through 2021, based on data available, The report also analyzes the market by geographic segments, key players, challenges and opportunities.

Neuromarketing is a new area in marketing that can potentially help companies better understand their customers. It is driving company investments in new technologies, particularly in areas such as wearable smart devices. BCC Research offers this report to help market participants better understand and leverage the opportunities.

This report covers several key areas in the neuromarketing market. Global market trends are analyzed with currently available data on the number of neuromarketing companies and their sales revenues. The report discusses recent technological advances in neuroscience technology, ethical issues in neuromarketing, and the challenges and barriers that may restrict the market. The history and current state of neuromarketing is reviewed and discussed. An analysis of industry structure, including sales, market share and the major market drivers, is presented. Key neuromarketing technologies such as functional magnetic image resonance imaging (fMRI), electroencephalography (EEG), galvanic skin response (GSR) measurement, eye tracking and biometrics are examined. Likely future industry developments in neuromarketing technology are discussed.

Detailed reviews of company revenues based on their use of neuromarketing is considered beyond the scope of this report and is excluded from the study. Regions in this report include the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), the Americas (North America and Latin America) and APAC (Asia-Pacific). Regions are broken down further where data was available.
