New Industries Added: Aerospace/Drones and Consumer Products/Services

Great news, we’re adding in-depth coverage of two vital industry sectors for our 2018 data and almanacs list:

  • Aerospace, Aircraft, Satellites & Drones Industry
  • Consumer Products, Cosmetics, Hair & Personal Services Industry

In Aerospace, the drone sector is soaring, if you’ll pardon the double-meaning of the word.  At the same time, airliners are selling in massive numbers at Boeing and Airbus, and some of the world’s most famous entrepreneurs are revolutionizing the rocket and space travel sector, including Tesla’s Elon Musk, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos and the UK’s Richard Branson.



In consumer items, including cosmetics and household cleansers, there is a growing interest in greener products.  At the same time, many emerging companies are gaining market share with innovative products, services and marketing.  A great example is the Dollar Shave Club, a firm that dramatically lowered the cost of razor blades by selling directly to consumers via subscription.  Its business model is so powerful that it’s giving Gillette “razor burn” and Gillette has lowered its prices on some blades.  Meanwhile, Dollar Shave Club was acquired by global consumer goods giant Unilever for $1 billion.  That’s a lot of blades!

Our new data will be available in three formats, in late 2017 or early 2018.
