Science, Technology and Healthcare: 2018

Author: Jo McShea

Date: August 21, 2018


The Science, Technology & Healthcare (ST&H) market continues to evolve as organizations look for future growth opportunities, driven by technological developments, changing end-user requirements, and ongoing growth in data, analytics, and workflow solutions. This, in turn, drives Outsell’s coverage of the market and its constituent solution providers that offer the information and technology services purchased by academic institutions, corporates, funders, and individual professionals.

This report includes an analysis of market trends and our forecast for segment growth and performance through 2021 in each of the major categories we cover. It provides a description of the industry, its competitive landscape, disruptive forces, and companies, as well as Outsell’s industry forecast.

The report provides essential actions for companies in this space looking to create revenue opportunities, attract new buyers, and achieve competitive advantage. Equally, it supports those who cover and need greater understanding of the industry, including suppliers, software and technology companies working in adjacent markets, investment bankers, private equity firms, and venture capitalists.


Outsell bases the information in this report on a comprehensive and rigorous methodology we developed. This methodology provides financial estimates for the overall market, for appropriate markets within the overall segment, and for specific companies in the ecosystem. We analyze revenue 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’s methodology starts with its database of over 9,300 global media and information companies. We assign these firms to all appropriate segments in which they operate.

Outsell uses all publicly available information and our 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, 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 the 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 or estimated information industry revenue
