Finding Industry Information

Finding current and reliable information on an industry can be challenging.  For one thing, market research reports found on the open Internet tend to be prohibitively expensive.  It's proprietary information and it takes a lot of time to research and compile. 

The other thing you have to be careful about is bias.  Reports produced by the industries themselves should be carefully evaluated as they might not always provide the whole picture; showcasing the positive parts and omitting the negative.
