From our survey, we can suggest that a high percentage of people (61%) involved in business recognise animation for business marketing regularly. Therefore, this gives us a positive outlook on how the future of animation looks. Businesses should involve animation in their marketing plans.
It is evident from our findings that respondents have consumed animation for business marketing. However, when we asked whether the individual or their business have used business animation, the results were different. If you are wondering, business animation allows you to specifically advertise your company. For example, you may want to create a bespoke business animation to display your product or explain your company’s ethos.
57% of respondents in our survey answered ‘no’ that they or their company has not used business animation. We can infer that the majority of respondents have not used business animation. Consequently, using business animation can make you stand out from your competitor.

From this result, we then asked our respondents who they prefer to work with. 52% said they prefer a small bespoke animation studio, 30% used individual freelancers, whilst 9% used large animation studios.
