To create market sizing estimates, we took revenue data from Outsell’s information industry database for all major players in this space and conducted a bottom-up calculation of total revenues from the sale of standards. We compiled the revenues for standards products using data and guidance available in public financial filings, investor presentations, and annual reports, supplementing these with our own informed estimates.
In the light of this research, Outsell has reviewed some of our revenue estimates for the major standards resellers and, as a result, revised down our previous estimate of the aggregators segment of the market. The changes have been applied to earlier years, so the growth rates reflect actual market performance in 2018.
Following this desk research, we corroborated our findings with information provided by public bodies, research performed by trade bodies and national standards organizations, and Outsell’s portfolio of related primary research. Outsell also conducted interviews with leading standards development organizations and resellers, creating a qualitative picture of market drivers, disruptors, and the competitive landscape. Representatives participating in our research came from AENOR (Spain), AFNOR (France), ANSI, API, ASME, ASTM, BSI (UK), CSA (Canada), DIN/Beuth (Germany), IEC, IHS Markit, ISO, JSA (Japan), MADCAD, NEN (Netherlands), SAE, SAI Global, Techstreet, and XSB.
A deep understanding of information-centric disruptive forces, daily interaction with executives in the information industry, and analysis of products and services that Outsell conducts as part of its advisory services further supported our analysis.
