Industrial Classification Systems

  • Industry classification systems (NAICS or SIC) categorizes industries so that similar industries are grouped together.
  • Narrower industries appear within broader industry categories.
  • Search databases with both industry classification codes, NAICS or SIC, or by keywords.
  • Industry classification systems do not always keep up with industry trends (wearables, big data, etc.)
