Sell side makes report for others, they always makes report which is available to the public. But on the other hand buy side do research for their own investment and decisions.

Sell side includes - Broking companies, Investment banking.
Buy side includes - Private equity, Venture capital, Pension funds,Asset management.

In the world financial market buy side research is dominating.
