Information Industry Market Size and Share Rankings: Preliminary 2010 Results
This report analyzes preliminary estimates of 2010 revenue and 2009-to-2010 growth in the $368.5 billion information industry and its segments. Of 11 segments covered, three segments posted a decline in growth – HR Information, Yellow Pages & Directories, and News Providers & Publishers – a continued function of structural change and hiring challenges made worse by the recession. Steadily growing from last year’s declines, all other segments posted modest gains. The report includes:
- Revenue and growth rates for the total information industry, which grew 0.6% in 2010, and its top 20 companies, which in aggregate grew 5.3% in 2010;
- Revenue and growth rates of the top 5-10 companies in each of 11 industry segments;
- Outsell’s commentary on trends in each segment;
- Essential actions for publishers and information providers.
Outsell continuously updates a database of over 7,000 publishers and information providers worldwide and uses a supply-side methodology to size the information industry. This preliminary market size and share report is prepared to give an early indication of the size of the information industry market for 2010. We publish final market size and share metrics in June, and our comprehensive industry forecast in the autumn.
