Counterpoint Research Buys Supply Chain Analyst DSCC

December 14 2023

Tech markets insight firm Counterpoint Research has completed the acquisition of display industry specialist Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC).

Counterpoint MD Tom KangCounterpoint's studies cover the b2b supply-side markets for semiconductors, components and manufacturing, as well as smartphones, consumer electronics, PCs, servers, networks, automotive, industrial and other connected end markets on the demand side. The firm provides a mix of monthly reports, customized projects and detailed market analyses.

DSCC was formed in 2016, has offices in the US, UK and across East Asia, and focuses more narrowly on the (digital) display industry, providing syndicated reports, consultation and events.

Counterpoint says the buy will enhance its display research across numerous verticals, helping broaden its market coverage to new verticals and strengthening its component and supply chain business. It will also help DSCC to scale up its research via its new parent's end-to-end data and comprehensive methodologies covering the entire supply chain, from chip fabrication to devices to the end consumer. Specifically, Counterpoint's country-level, bottom-up sales research will immediately be combined with DSCC's panel shipment and supply chain data, bringing new insights.

Counterpoint MD and co-founder Tom Kang (pictured) comments: 'DSCC has a proven track record of delivering accurate and timely analyses in the advanced display market, helping its clients make more informed decisions in what continues to be a rapidly evolving market. The business has seen high growth and profitability during the last five years which, combined with a highly experienced and knowledgeable analyst team, makes it a natural fit for Counterpoint Research'. Kang says the deal will 'further accelerate [Counterpoint's] double-digit growth in revenue and earnings'.

DSCC co-founder and CEO Ross Young comments: 'Counterpoint Research has quickly become the leader in numerous market segments, and access to its sales data will help refine our near-term forecasts, drive innovation and ultimately enhance the content we provide to our clients. There are also numerous research segments our combined businesses can add tremendous value to, helping our clients make better decisions'.
