Industry Research

The following sources contain information about industries.  Information available may include such things as background, trends, projections, market share, trade associations, sales figures, etc.  Resources offering industry research often also provide some focus on supply chain and logistics topics. The amount of information will vary by the size, age, and complexity of an industry.

When researching an industry, be certain to branch out of library resources to find professional associations relevant to your area of interest. Professional associations (such as IEEE) are comprised of a network of professionals in a field, and most industries have at least one major association operating which can be an excellent source for information inside an industry. Once you've identified a major association, you can generally find its official web presence through a Google search.
