Industries and Market Research: Background

Industry Profiles

Industry profiles are similar to a current encyclopedia article about your industry. Use NAICS codes to help find your industry. 

Market Research Reports

Market research includes trends, sales, competitors, forecasts, consumer profiles, and anything related to the current state of the market.  Market research reports (unlike industry profiles) are organized around product categories rather than by NAICS code. Market research may use data gathered from focus groups, surveys, and analysis of secondary data.
