Key Market Research Databases

These keyword-searchable databases contain in-depth market research reports on a wide range of industries and sub-industries.  Each of these has its particular strengths and weaknesses, so try all that seem relevant.

Company Directories and Analysis

Search these directories for company-specific information.  Some have more listings of privately held companies than others, some (most) also include industry analyses (not as in-depth as the market research databases), most include competitor lists, some are more finance and equities oriented, others are more balanced.
