There’s a wealth of really fabulous resources available to Calgary Public Library cardholders, through our e-library. One of my favourites is a digital edition of Market Share Reporter. This comprehensive book has statistics about all sorts of markets, and who (or which product) enjoys the largest share of the market. Check out some of these diverse statistics:
- Avocado Sales by Type
- Best-Selling Albums
- Demand for Pesticides, by Application
Market Share Reporter is an essential tool for entrepreneurs who need current statistics about their market and closest competitors. It’s also fun to simply dig up obscure facts. For instance, did you know that in 2012, China will spend over $260 billion on apparel?
