History

Our roots as a market research company extend back to 1960 when the company was founded in New York as Data Development Corporation. As our clients grew, so did the scope and reach of our work. By 2004, we were serving clients across the United States, as well as throughout North America and South America. Continued client growth has resulted in the opening of a London office for Radius Europe, a Dubai office for the Middle East and Africa, and mostly recently, Beijing as the headquarters for Radius Asia.

Even as other market research companies have merged or were acquired in the last decade, Data Development Worldwide continued to operate as an independent provider of custom market research. This decision to remain independent allowed us to provide our clients with the best possible strategic thinking and senior research experience available.

For these reasons, among many others, we have experienced explosive growth over the last decade, being honored annually as one of the Gold Top 50 U.S. Market Research Firms. In January 2010, Data Development Worldwide became Radius Global Market Research to better define the holistic, integrated analysis and end-to-end solutions we provide our clients.
