The Market Research Centre has access to a range of databases that provide company information across various industries and countries. Company listings are a way of identifying potential customers, collaborators, and competitors. Below we’ll discuss the databases that focus on company information.
The BvD Orbis database currently holds the details of over 200 million companies and covers 227 countries. Financial information for companies is available dependent on the filing requirements of individual countries.
Kompass is a global database of companies which can by filtered by sector and industry codes (SIC and NAICS), and further by manufacturers, distributers, and services.
Most reports available to clients note the major companies in the industry, while some databases have separate Company Reports available.
Clients can use Plimsoll’s benchmarking reports to monitor their competitors and see their place in the market. Marketline, IBISWorld, Euromonitor, and Globalcomms have individual company reports or major companies analyses within their industry reports.
The Market Research Centre service is available to Enterprise Ireland clients. The Centre is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to book in or to discuss any research queries with the team. Clients can view the resources the MRC has access to here.
