Industry Reports

Industry reports can be a valuable source of information for a feasibility analysis or business plan. Reports typically present overviews of industry trends, industry revenue, and revenue projections in an easy to digest format. Though reports may cover an industry that is broader than the market you are researching (for example, Sporting Goods Stores instead of Bicycle Shops), they are still useful for understanding the environment in which a new company may be operating.
