Trusted insight into market opportunities

Derived opportunities represent Janes analysts’ anticipation of requirements prior to a customer’s announcement and without benefit of any other source. These estimates can be based on ageing inventory, R&D investments, compatibility requirements, defence market trends, buying patterns, technology drivers or geo-political issues that may reasonably create a requirement that the customer may not currently foresee or acknowledge.
