Top 20 industry guides

The industry guides produced by the ICAEW Library & Information Service have now been around for over ten years and have long been recognised as a valuable resource, offering exclusive content to ICAEW members and ACA students on a diverse range of high street businesses and industry sectors.

The industry guides were first launched on 15 December 2004 and were originally intended to help members in business and practice get quick access to industry data and the market research reports we offer as a benefit of membership.

The selection of industries that you see today has been driven by member requests for industry information received by our enquiry team over the past 11 years. Are there any industries that you would like to see covered?
