Startup Entrepreneurs will need to observe the Competitive Landscape tab of an IBIS World industry report, paying close attention to the sections of "Keys to Success" and "Barriers to Entry."
In addition to using the Competitive Landscape tab in Industry Reports from IBISWorld for macro-level (nationwide and worldwide) information on competition within an industry, you may need to identify significant competitors within a specific locale. ReferenceUSA may be used to identify locations of companies within a zip code, county, or within a specified radius. For example, one may use ReferenceUSA to learn the locations of coffee shops within 10 miles of Bloomsburg University.
