In this tutorial, you will learn how to find industry reports using IBISWorld, which provides access to a comprehensive collection of Industry Market Research and Industry Risk Ratings.

On the right side of the screen, you should see the IBISWorld search interface. You can always access this database through Blackboard or from the UA Libraries homepage.

Use the arrows below to navigate through the tutorial.

Search by NAICS

You may search IBISWorld by NAICS code, industry name, company name, and by brand name.

The simplest way to search is by NAICS code. From previous tutorials, you should remember that Intel Corporation's main NAICS code is 334413. Enter that into the search box.

Note that more than two reports appeared in the search because many NAICS codes can be subdivided into multiple industries.

Aside from Semiconductor & Circuit Manufacturing in the US, what is the other industry that comes up in the search?


Search by Industry Name

If you weren't sure of the NAICS code, you could search by industry name. Enter Microprocessors into either search box.

Aside from Semiconductor & Circuit Manufacturing in the US, what is another report in the search?


Search by Company

Another option is to search by company name. This method will ONLY work if the company is mentioned in the report.

Search for General Electric. Now open the report titled Medical Device Manufacturing in the US.

According to this report, what is another major competitor in this market? (look under the Major Companies tab)


Search by Brand
