Go to the following databases:

  • MarketLine Advantage: Gives top competitors as well as competitors in the industry.
  • Mergent Online or Mergent Horizon. Note that Mergent Horizon only has public companies. Mergent Horizon is a more complex database but it has more information. It is a separate tab within Mergent Online.
  • LexisNexis Academic: Lists top competitors but you could also create a list of companies looking for similar characteristics like SIC or NAICS codes.
  • ReferenceUSA: Gives a competitors report, but not always comprehensive. However, it too allows you to create a list by codes or other characteristics. It is best for local companies.
