Industry Research

There are many library databases that can help you research industry activity! Below is a link to the industry research guide put together by our business librarian Jennifer Freer. This guide has a wealth of information about this kind of research.

Start your industry research with IBISWorld. This resource will give you some background and economic information on each included industry, and will provide a state-level geographic breakdown of industry activity.

Looking for details on where businesses in certain industries operate? Use Data Axle! Contact Claire (information below) to set up an appointment for help using Data Axle to find information relevant to you.

Mintel is the best place to start for information about consumer markets.
