Sample question: "What is market share and how do I find it for my industry?"
Answer: Oxford's A Dictionary of Business (HF 1001 C74 in Reference) defines this concept as the,
|"...share of the total sales of all brands or products competing in the same market that is captured by one particular brand or product, usually expressed as a percentage."
The Market Share Reporter and the World Market Share Reporter provide this type of data for many industries. These publications can be found electronically through Business & Company Resource Center or in print (HF5410 M34 and HF5410 W92, respectively, in Ready Reference).
