CONTEXT is headquartered in London, and with more than 200 staff members in 15 countries, the company specializes in tracking technology sales, pricing and channel information. Boasting what they say is the largest Distribution Channel Sales Database in the world, CONTEXT tracks channel sales across EMEA countries, and they also serve as the official data partner for the Global Technology Distribution Council (GTDC).

The service will allow companies to track trends in the 3DP sphere by providing data and insight into 3D printing on a global scale, and Chris Connery, an industry veteran with more than 24 years IT market experience, will head up the effort.

Connery will serve as CONTEXT’s new VP for Global Analysis and Research.

“The attention to the personal 3D Printer market has never been higher, with shipments for these desktop 3D printers poised to surpass 1 million units by 2018,” Connery says. “When combined with forecast sales of established industrial and professional 3D printers, the total market for printer hardware alone is on pace to pass $5 billion worldwide in just the next few years. CONTEXT is leading the way in forecasting and tracking this new category, not only globally, but also across the entire value chain through our rich network of global channel tracking programs.”

“Chris brings a wealth of industry experience to CONTEXT from his days at NEC, as well as top-rated research skills from senior management roles in IT research companies, DisplaySearch and NPD, all of which will be of immense benefit to our customers and information partners across the world,” Davies said of Connery’s appointment.

CONTEXT operates from local offices in countries around the globe, and their data development capabilities are also supported by specialized, offshore data processing teams who were all trained and developed in-house.
