North America has extended its dominance of data analytics hirings among drinks industry companies, according to recent research.

In the three months to the end of November, the number of vacancies advertised in the region accounted for 52% of total data analytics jobs – up from 39.7% in the same quarter last year. North America was followed by Asia-Pacific, which saw a +2.1 year-on-year percentage point change in roles related to the theme.

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, which tracks the number of new job postings from key companies in various industries. Using textual analysis, job ads are then classified thematically to gauge which companies are best placed to weather future industry disruptions.

The research is designed to show which companies are leading the way on specific issues as well as where the market is expanding and contracting.
