Each of these almanacs devotes hundreds of pages to...

  • major trends that are creating rapid changes in their target industry,  
  • in-depth statistics on sales, manufacturing, employment and more,
  • key contacts (associations, government agencies, and internet sites), and a
  • detailed directory of major firms, complete with high-level financial data and growth plans.

Plunkett industry almanacs are a useful supplement to our other industry reports, such as those in our IBISWorld database.  They don't generally contain much analysis, but they provide the information you need to start analyzing potential markets yourself. 

We'll be adding links to these new editions on relevant SFU Library pages such as our Industry Surveys and Biotechnology Industry research guides over the next few weeks.
