    Welcome to EL&U. That would depend...you capitalized Market Research..is it the name of a company? – Cascabel Feb 10 at 23:48

The capitalization of Market Research makes me unsure whether it was a typo or if "Market Research" is a company name. So, I'm going to answer as well as I can in both of the possible cases.

If you're talking about market research as in the verb, than it would be involves. As in:

Market research involves finding out about the market.

It would be just like "Being a politician involves a lot of networking". Involves is the simple present tense of to involve, a tense used to describe factual or habitual actions, in this case factual.

If you meant "Market Research" as in a company, then both of the sentences would be incorrect. Perhaps:

Market Research was involved with finding out about the market.

It's hard to know what you were looking for in this case due to the potential typo, though I hope this helped.
