The big names in market research reporting depend largely on the industry.

But if you're looking for specific industry and market research, there are usually well-known analysts covering that specific industry. For example, in the high tech/Internet field, there's Forrester and Jupiter. Hospitals/Medical have Cooper and medpanel.com. If don't already know about them, you can probably find the specialists in your industry or business segment by asking around or doing some basic research.
