Accessing Intrinio data for individual US equities is affordable, easy, and extremely valuable when analyzing investments. What can be even more powerful is accessing that data on an industry-wide or sector-wide level. We developed a Sector & Industry API so investors and developers can instantly access data to generate lucrative insights for different segments of the market.
The Sector & Industry API enables you to identify and track both historical and the most recent trends for sectors like Oil & Gas, Pharmaceuticals, and Technology. If you're a developer, this gives you unprecedented, flexible access to data for integration into your website, software, or application. If you're an investor, you can perform powerful analytics leveraging our Excel add-in.
We leveraged the power of the SIC code to aggregate our US Public Company data by sector and industry.
The Standard Industrial Classification SIC is a system for classifying industries by a four-digit code. Established in the United States in 1937, it is used by government agencies to classify industry areas.-Wikipedia
According to Wikipedia, SIC codes are assigned based on common characteristics shared in the products, services, production, and delivery system of a business.
Making this data available via a Web API is incredibly powerful. It's a flexible distribution system that enables our users to access the data in countless ways, leveraging any programming language, to build game-changing products.
The power of a Sector & Industry API is unprecedented, but we recognize that not everyone is a developer and that a lot of valuable financial analysis happens in Excel. That's why we also built an Excel add-in around the API that enables our users to access the data in their spreadsheets.
NOTE: The examples below are for v1 of the Intrinio API. If you’re using API v2, follow the v2 documentation instead.
