Industry Research: Where Do I Start?

The first step in industry research is to identify the industry (or industries) of interest. Here are two methods:

  • Find the NAICS and SIC codes for an industry using the information in the Industry Codes tab on the left side of the page
  • If you have a company in mind, and simply want to research the industry for that company: look the company up in Mergent Online or NexisUni Company Dossier. The company profiles will include the industry codes.

Once you know the industry name and/or code, visit the resources below.
