iSuppli acquires TRG

TRG's research and analysis operations will be integrated with iSuppli's automotive infotainment and electronics services and research on vehicle microelectromechnical systems (MEMS).

"TRG clients have access to the world's richest database of automotive telematics and infotainment electronics," said Derek Lidow, president & CEO of iSuppli. "Hundreds of production vehicles from around the world are profiled, with new entries added every day that reveal insights into hardware, software, services, components and sourcing. The analytical knowledge, experience and databases of the two firms will meld to form an iSuppli research practice that is able to produce the world's most in-depth and actionable market and technology roadmaps for automotive electronics and systems."

TRG's founder and principal analyst, Phil Magney, will head the expanded iSuppli automotive research practice.

The TRG acquisition represents the latest development in iSuppli's efforts to expand its research programs into new areas and enhance coverage of its existing automotive, car electronics and infotainment markets.

In October 2006, iSuppli hired Richard Robinson, principal analyst for automotive electronics responsible for iSuppli's research and analysis of the automotive infotainment value chain. Also in late-2006, iSuppli augmented its automotive research with the purchase of Japan-based market intelligence company, Data Garage.

In April 2008, iSuppli acquired Wicht Technologie Consulting (WTC), a Germany-based provider of research on the photovoltaics and MEMS markets.
