New database: IBISWorld

Announcing the recent acquisition by the USF Libraries of a new business database called IBISWorld.

IBISWorld provides reports for all of the 723 US industries enabling research on the entire sector of the U.S. economy. Information is updated every four months, ensuring the latest information. Reports are divided into three searchable modules: Industry Market Research; Company Research, and Business Environment. Market research reports contain trends, statistics and analysis on market size, market share of competitors and industry growth rates. Major market segments are identified and also those forces affecting demand and supply within the industry. Performance analysis includes emerging industry trends as well as recent production performance. Each comprehensive study also examines details such as the barriers to entry, industry averages, technology & systems and domestic and international markets. Tables and statistics include: industry revenue, exports, imports, wages and number of companies in the industry. Business Environment Research Reports explain how economic, demographic and other changes influence people, enterprises and commerce. By using a unique ‘outside-looking-in’ approach one can examine a company’s external environment to help successfully control business risks and identify market opportunities.
