About IBR

International Business Report (IBR)

The International Business Report (IBR) is the world’s leading survey of mid-market companies. Launched in 1992, the IBR now provides insight into the views and expectations of around 10,000 businesses across 28 economies.

The research takes place twice a year and involves interviews with chief executive officers, managing directors, chairpersons or other senior executives from all industry sectors. Questionnaires are translated into local languages and fieldwork is undertaken through both online and telephone interviews.

The IBR data is referenced extensively in thought leadership by the Grant Thornton network and is the basis for our Global business pulse, the first index to track the health of mid-sized companies at a global, regional, country and sector level.
