We can now look forward to expand our premier services and products not just in India but globally as well.”

The acquisition helps Nielsen strengthen its portfolio in India by combining its information and insights capabilities with Indicus’ focus on analytic solutions, the company said.

“With the acquisition of Indicus Analytics, Nielsen will add capabilities for macro and microeconomic research and analytics with relevance for both public and private sectors,” said Piyush Mathur, president, Nielsen India region.
