Working on Your Research Assigment

Market Research Databases

  • This is the first database I will start with for market research reports on consumer products.
  • It provides statistics, analysis, reports, surveys and breaking news on industries, countries and consumers worldwide.
  • Contains data and analysis on consumer lifestyles, population trends, and socioeconomic analysis.


  • Daily views, reports & strategic content, data and forecast on various industries like real estate, retail, etc can be found here.
  • Good coverage in Asian markets.

  • Gives market research and technical development reports for technology industries such as wastewater management, etc.
  • Asian markets are not as well covered it should be.


Business Source Premier

  • Business Source Premier has market research reports and industry profiles. Mostly Datamonitor reports - but the basic ones only.
  • Use it to look for product reviews or industry profiles to complement Passport's reports.
