Database Trial: IBISWorld

The library has trials of the two business databases IBISWorld and Mintel Oxygen Academicfor the month of February.

Follow this link to access IBISWorld.

IBISWorld’s main database includes Industry Market Research reports on more than 700 US industries. Reports are written at the 5-digit level of the official North American Industry Classification System(NAICS). For the trial we also have access to the following additional reports available at separate costs:

Business Environment reports: The business weather report! 2-3 pages of data and analysis on more than 350 key economic, demographic and consumer indicators that impact industry.

iExpert Briefs: 4 page industry summaries.

Industry Risk Rating reports: The Risk Rating measures the risk in the business operating environment over the next 12-18 months. Our risk rating is a numerical score that you can instantly understand and translate into opportunities, or threats, relevant to an industry. Each report contains a high level of analysis to support each score component.

International Industry Reports - China / United Kingdom / Australia: Reports follow the same user-friendly format as the U.S. equivalent. (Scroll down on IBISWorld’s home page for links to the international report modules).

Global Industry Reports: Reports are structured in the same way as the U.S. collection.
