Need to know about the global market for specific products, such as personal protective equipment (PPE)?

Research and Markets (R&M), a source for international market research and market data, is one place to start. R&M currently markets more than 80,000 major research publications from most of the leading publishers, consultants and analysts worldwide. R&M provides businesses with current data on international and regional markets, key industries, the top companies, new products and the latest trends. R&M is a "one-stop-shop" for market research reports and industry newsletters from specialist research firms and niche market analysts.

R&M, based in Dublin, Ireland, doesn't produce its own reports. Instead, it's a market research broker that markets and sells research data and reports from a variety of publishers, including Access Asia, ALM Books, Business Research Group, First Research, Frost & Sullivan, Global Industry Analysts Inc., Harris Infosource, Industry Watch Group LLC, MarketStrat Inc., Primary Research Group Inc., Rapra Technology Ltd., ResearchInChina and Richard K. Miller & Associates Inc.

R&M's Web site (http://www.researchandmarkets.com), which has information on more than 387,000 market and industry reports, is an Internet tool worth checking. The research database at this site includes information about more than 350 market sectors, including: telecommunications and computing, business and finance, manufacturing and construction, pharmaceuticals and healthcare, consumer and retail, energy and transport, government and public sector. It also includes more than 26,000 company reports, including stock reports and franchises, as well as more than 1,500 country reports on export, trade and political risk.

Reports listed at the R&M site often provide a variety of analyses, including strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT), and political, economic, socio-cultural and technological (PEST) business environmental analyses.

The site features a powerful search engine, permitting users to locate information on a wide variety of markets and companies. A search at the site for information on "protective equipment" reports along with the year 2008 yielded a variety of pertinent items, including this sample listed here:
