This database has some surprises and without the information opportunities could be missed and wrong directions taken. For example, in the addressable market Europe and North America have 76% of the world’s DSOs, with only 11% of the largest companies but 77% of the smallest. In contrast, Asia has only 4% of the total number, but 87% of the largest utilities. South America has only 3.6% of the total, but 16% of the mid-size. The database has many such comparisons, which demonstrates its value as a targeting resource.
