Outsourced corporate research and development services represent an untapped market for companies daunted by advances in technology, a management consultancy has claimed.

While technology was the main concern of the 52 companies surveyed by Buy Research, only a fifth said that they had considered, or were currently considering, outsourcing as a strategy to manage core and non-core research.
