I'm looking for the data source that describes how the industries related to each other via consume/produce cycle.
Any data source that could help me build chains like in the following example:

Bauxite ore > (consumed by) aluminum industry (produce) > aluminum > (consumed by) aerospace

    $\begingroup$ If you just want to identify particular supply chains, IBISWorld Industry Reports would typically have a section on that. For example, here's one involving the US aluminum industry. This is not the kind of "data" in the usual sense, though. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @HerrK. thank you for your link. I would like as many as possible across all economy. Aluminum is just an example :) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ This sounds like Input-Output Analysis, where you have Outputs=[Some Matrix]*Inputs. Many countries' statistical agencies have the matrix (unfortunately I personally don't know any sources). $\endgroup$

Most OECD countries have Input-Output Account tables as part of their economic statistics publications. For the U.S., you can find them here at the BEA's website. I'm not sure that they will be as detailed as you hope, however.

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, thank you! I want something like this but either more granular or tables with more industries. $\endgroup$
