I am currently creating a business plan on manufacturing chainmaille, both for sale and rentals, and I would appreciate any information and figures about the worldwide production and commercial sales that anyone has available. NAICS #s, feasability, etc.

I wish I could say I had some numbers for you, but I frankly wouldn't even know where to start looking...

I can tell you from experience that you need to focus on either low-end, high-quantity sales (i.e. jewelry) or high-end, low-quantity sales(i.e. $1-5000 combat grade armor). Everything in between is unprofitable due to hobbyists underselling themselves and cheaply made mid-range stuff from India...
