Peruvian Dishsoap and Long Term Care Insurance

Tuesday, June 19th, 2007

start2.jpgNothing gets you off to a running start like finding a market research report for your industry.  We’ve recently extended coverage from our two most important providers of market research, Euromonitor and Mintel. 



 – 28 Additional Countries

Euromonitor’s Global Market Information Database (GMID) provides data and analysis on international markets.  We’ve added a new module featuring data on consumer markets for countries like Ecuador, Lithuania, and Iran.  These additional 28 countries brings our total coverage up to 80–that’s 85% of the world’s population and 98% of global consumer spending.

In this new module you can pick up interesting tidbits like the fact that the growing number of working women in Peru has increased demand for more convenient household cleaning products, or that Coca-Cola’s bottler in Kazakhstan enjoys a 12.9% market share, compared to Pepsi’s 7.9%.




Mintel is a publisher of high-quality market research reports on health, lifestyles, food, electronics, travel, and many more industries.  We’ve added the Finance module to our subscription, providing 39 in-depth reports with market research on topics like “Long Term Care Insurance” or “Asian-Americans and Finance”.

To access Mintel you need to enter your email address and create a password. 

Both Mintel and GMID can be accessed off-campus.
