The reports target audiences of potential industrial developers, the purpose being both to inform developers of the state of industry in South Carolina as well as to promote new industrial development. The reports cover a range of areas in South Carolina: providing information at the state-wide, county, and individual site levels.

Many of the reports also feature important data about the communities surrounding the available industrial sites; this data discusses population, information about community resources such as recreation and church availability, and public services such as medical, fire, and police resources.
