Tier4 Research is a bottoms-up aerospace research provider focused on timely analysis of the entire supply chain, with an upstream channel focus (or tier-4 peer group), specialty materials markets, and other niche suppliers. With 21+ years experience, a vast network of industry contacts, and the propensity to provide hard-hitting, opinionated research on lesser-covered companies, Chris Olin truly has a finger on the pulse of the aerospace industry.
Tier4 Research identifies areas of industry strength and/or weakness, offering investors a better means to generate alpha. Our intelligence also helps non-investment professional accurately track market trends, inflection points, areas of supply constraints, and cost inflation risk.
Our proprietary surveys started in the specialty materials universe, driven by feedback collected from the high-level industry contacts in the titanium, nickel-based alloy and aluminum plate/sheet channels, but those communications slowly expanded into other core competencies. For example, we report on products that are difficult to track including aerospace fasteners, composite materials, premium forgings and aircraft interiors in order to draw conclusions on larger the companies such as Boeing and General Electric.
