Well, it's not really possible using Google Analytics. If you have enabled benchmarking on your Google Analytics property you'll be able to compare high level metrics (traffic, sources, bounce rates) within your vertical/industry. But it's very high level.

 

I think what you're looking for is something to do content analysis, share of voice analysis on search engines etc. Take a look at Searchmetrics or Brightedge.

You can track only websites where you installed your GA code.

For competitors research you can use similarweb.com

Not Possible

Possible only if you have access of your competitor Google analytics account.
