About the Industry Development Program
Through their research, IDP prepares Industry Analysis Reports to companies in targeted industries to facilitate project development. These reports provide in-depth examination to the feasibility of developments in a particular industry. State resources are examined to identify the state’s strengths and weaknesses for the targeted development, and market research is conducted to verify the timing of investment into the targeted industry and whether or not it will be supported by market demand with a reasonable return on investment.
IPD’s Industry Analysis Reports are supported by the Census and Economic Information Center, programs within the Department of Commerce, other state agencies, and state and private affiliates.
