CEIC offers two products to meet your requirements:  Data Feeds and API:

Data Feeds 

Data Feeds is a product to provide CEIC data to customers in bulk.  This is the ideal solution for clients who need entire data sets integrated into their backend systems or final products.  This is also a solution that can support a large number of users. Data Feeds is delivered once a day via standard FTP in ASCII format. 


API is another one of CEIC Data’s data feed options to support direct application–to-application integration through industry standard request interfaces such as web API. API is different from Data Feeds in that it enables you to access different data sets upon request, and allows manipulation of the data, for example, defining data items and customized searches.  With API, once the data is integrated into your systems, you can customize the data as much as you wish on demand. 

Key benefits: 

  • Direct access to CEIC’s full range of content
  • Customized solution to handle large amounts of data
  • Seamless integration into your existing workflow
  • Supports automation of data population and report production
  • Quick retrieval of large volumes of data for local storage
