(a) analysts, who predicted --> "the industry continue ..., contrary to analysts" , doesn't make sense, it should be contrary to something/predictions
(b) analysts, whose predictions
(c) analysts and their predictions
(d) analysts' predicting
(e) analysts' predictions --> correct : plural "analysts", plural "predictions"
