Sustainable Tourism

Sustainable tourism studies are part of our core research strengths. considering tourism industry contributing to more than 8% of total carbon emissions in the world, we consider this area of research can play key role in promoting sustainable business and sustainable development. Our tourism studies include forecasting, carbon emission estimation by tourism activities and likely solution towards that, tourists behaviour by segments, destination analysis and such areas of interests to business and policy makers.


Promoting sustainability and helping others in achieving it is our core business theme. Our studies cover estimation of carbon footprint and its impact on entire ecosystem including business and population, waste management, sustainable product promotion and similar areas. This is done across sectors. We also study environmental vulnerability of locations and their likely implications on future business and habitations along with the likely economic loss.

Development Sector

We cover entire development sector including education, health, poverty, financial inclusion as well as including development. One of our major focus is to understand inequalities in accessibility of social infrastructure and their resultant impact on inclusive development. Our studies involving indexations help in understanding these concerns in greater details over space and by other characteristics of population in the country. Along with these, we do undertake Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) related studies with the help of robust impact assessment tools.

Consumer Economics and Business Research

Consumer economics and business research solutions related studies are part of our core research areas. we study consumers with the help of primary survey and secondary data as well as our proprietary consumer demographic data at extreme granular level. Our studies on consumption behaviour analyses and the likely changes in future helps our extremely helpful to our clients for stress-free decision-making covering marketing, salesforce development, distribution network, supply chain building and related ones. Our solutions range from robust forecasting for various sectors to predict revenues for retailers at point locations to identifying locations for promoting premium products. We cover all sectors including FMCG, Automobile, Durables, Real estate, modern and traditional retail and other sectors of the economy. We cover entire geography of India, including all urban and rural space. Our capabilities of conducting large scale surveys across entire India and advanced analytics along with remote sensing and GIS skills help us addressing problems which many would dare to think of as solutions.


ACRA tracks macroeconomic changes closely. We study India’s evolving econo-political relationships with other countries and analyse the policy and business implications of such changes. Our analyses include industry, agriculture, infrastructure, trade, poverty and other related economic changes and their implications. Our special strength is economic analysis over geographic space involving advanced econometric and statistical technique. Our analyses also involve macro modelling involving Input-Output analysis, Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) and other relevant techniques especially for economic impact analysis.
