New databases for company and industry research

This year we have access to two new databases, one for market research, the other for company information.

Global Business Intelligence (also known as GBI Research) was purchased as a replacement for Business Insights. This database provides analysis of industry-shaping issues worldwide through key data and forecasts. The industry coverage matches that of Business Insights, with a focus on:

  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Medical Equipment
  • Oil & Gas
  • Chemicals
  • Clean Technology
  • Power
  • Semiconductors
  • Mining

Reports can be viewed online, downloaded as a whole into Microsoft Office, or you can select tables and data to download individually.

Global Company Intelligence offers detailed company reports across a broad range of markets and industries.

The available content for each company can be seen at a glance in the results list from the following icons:

Global Company Intelligence | Home-1

The different types of content available are:
C = Company information, facts and figures
$ = Detailed financial information and ratios
S = Detailed SWOT analysis for the company
P = Premium, in-depth company intelligence
N = News stories relating to the company
D = Deals coverage relating to the company

The financial and SWOT benchmarking tool allows you to compare of custom lists of companies based on criteria such as industry, location, revenue and market cap.

Both databases can be accessed by current Warwick staff and students via Encore.
