The Science, Technology & Healthcare (ST&H) market continues to grow and change as organizations look for innovative growth opportunities driven by technology, end-user needs, and continued strong growth in content, data, and analytics. These market dynamics drive Outsell’s coverage of the market and its constituent solution providers that offer information and technology services purchased by academic institutions, corporations, funders, and individual professionals.
This report includes an analysis of market trends and our forecast for segment growth and performance through 2022 in each of the major categories we cover. It provides a description of the industry, its competitive landscape, disruptive forces, and emerging companies, as well as Outsell’s industry forecast.

Outsell bases the information in this report on its comprehensive and rigorous methodology. This methodology provides financial estimates for the overall market, for specific markets within the overall segment, and for certain companies in the ecosystem. We analyze revenue several different ways, including looking retrospectively at historical trends and prospectively via Outsell’s market forecast. We provide growth rates, market share, and, where possible, geographic and format (print, digital, and in-person) splits for leading companies within the space. Outsell’s methodology starts with its robust database of over 9,000 global media and information companies, which are assigned to the 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 analysis to further segment and align their revenues according to Outsell’s industry segmentation. We use the best available information on private companies, augmented by our own primary proprietary research.
For each market segment, we present a table of the top 20 players in the space, ordered by revenue. We allocate revenue by segment for those companies that derive revenue from multiple segments. Only the portion of the provider’s revenue attributed to the subject segment is identified under that company for that segment. The sum of the various segments for a provider equals the company’s total reported or estimated information industry revenue.
