Q. Where do I find information on the market size of an industry?


Information on market size (number of buyers and sellers for a market) for specific companies can be located through the Mergent Online database.  You can also locate information on industries as a whole through the industry profiles available within the Mergent Online database. Watch the video below for instructions on locating industry information in Mergent Online.

Industry information can also be found through the Business Source Complete and Business via ProQuest databases. In both databases, type in your search terms and include the term "industry", for example, a search for "apparel industry" will produce a number of relevant results. If you have too many results, consider going to the Geography or Location area to select the country (likely United States) you are looking for.

For tutorials and guides on how to use these databases, and more on business research see School of Business Guide.
