IMS Research has acquired Young Market Research (YMR), a research company that focuses on the displays, TV, solid-state lighting and photovoltaic industries. YMR is headed by Ross and Barry Young, who also founded DisplaySearch, a flat-panel display market research, consulting and events firm, which was sold to the NPD Group in 2005.
As part of the transaction, Ross Young will move to head IMS Research's new displays research division and will act as a principal analyst in the PV sector. Barry Young will work on a variety of projects for IMS, in which he will be able to draw on his experience as managing director of the OLED Association.
