The APA does NOT provide a specific citation format for case studies. So, you will have to cite your case based on where you found it: a book, in a journal, a website, etc.

When researching an industry often you can conduct your search more efficiently when you have the SIC (standard industry code). The SIC has been used since 1937. Here is a website that will help you figure out your SIC: https://www.osha.gov/pls/imis/sicsearch.html.
You can also conduct your search by using the more recently developed (1987) NAICS (the North American Industry Classification System). This is the standard used by U.S. federal agencies in classifying business establishments for the purpose of collecting, analyzing, and publishing statistical data related to the U.S. business economy. Here is a website you can use to figure out your NAICS: http://www.census.gov/eos/www/naics/
While most of your resources for a case study analysis paper will be found via library databases don't forget to also check the Online Catalog. The Library's book collection is always growing and changing. You never know when you will find a book that provides you with the historical foundation you need in your case study report. Additionally, select government documents are also found via the Online Catalog. Again, you may come across a document that provides you with the reliable information you need.
Do you need to do a survey? Conduct field observation? Interview an industry professional? Consult with an expert? All of these type of resources will ALSO need to be documented in your bibliography/works cited page.
