Outsell’s newest research on the legal and regulatory solutions market has just been released, and finds market growth of 3.1% in 2016. Growth is greatest outside the United States, particularly in South America where the Brazilian economy is recovering from its deepest recession ever.

What’s propelling this $22.7 billion market? For years, the answer has been legal tech start-ups, but our research uncovers why this is likely to change in 2017.

What’s ahead? How will Brexit, a new administration, and changes in government worldwide impact this market? Learn more about what’s driving the market, opportunities for the coming year, and essential actions to ensure your success.


We base the information in this report on a comprehensive and rigorous methodology Outsell developed. This methodology provides financial estimates for the overall market, for appropriate markets within the overall segment, and for specific companies in the ecosystem. Revenue is analyzed several different ways, including both retrospectively in terms of historical trends and prospectively via Outsell’s market forecast. We provide growth rates, market share, and, where possible, geographic, revenue source, and format (print versus digital) splits for leading companies within the space. Outsell methodology starts with its growing database of 9,300 global data and information companies. These firms are assigned to all appropriate segments in which they operate.

Outsell uses all publicly available information and its own insight and research with the companies themselves to size each player in the space. We size public companies primarily on their reported results, though we also apply Outsell analysis to further segment and align their revenues according to Outsell’s industry segmentation. We size private companies using the best available information on each company, augmented by our own primary research.

For each market segment, we identify the top 20 largest players in the space (by revenue) in a table. Those companies that derive revenue from multiple segments have their revenue allocated by segment. Only the portion of provider’s total revenue that is attributed to the subject segment is identified under that company for that segment. The sum of the various segment revenues for a provider equals the company’s total reported/estimated information industry revenue.
