RBV not for Industry Level
Warren Miller, CPA, CFA, United States, Premium Member

The RBV cannot be applied to an industry. It is not designed for use in the context of that unit of analysis. Instead, the RBV is applied on an entity-specific basis. That reflects the heterogeneity that is the essence of head-to-head competitors, but it's that very heterogeneity that makes it impossible to apply to an industry.
