2011 began with cautious optimism and, although it delivered mid-single digit growth, uncertainty in the Western European economies and late-year contraction by market data users caused 2011 to end on a pessimistic note

Burton-Taylor International Consulting LLC, a recognized leader in information industry market research, strategy and business consulting, is pleased to announce the publication of their new report indicating the 2011 global spend for market data and analysis was up 6.07% versus 2010, to reach US$24.94 billion. This is the first time market data/analysis spend has neared US$25b, although much of the 2011 growth may be attributed to vendor price increases and benefits from favorable currency conversions. Bloomberg passed Thomson Reuters to take the overall market share lead in the industry, but only by the narrowest of margins, at 30.44% versus 30.05%.

The 164 page Burton-Taylor Financial Market Data/Analysis Global Share & Segment Sizing 2012 - Key Competitors 2007-11, Global Market Share 2007-11, Global Segment Sizing 2007-11, Global Product Mix 2007-11, Global User Mix 2007-11, Global Institution Mix 2007-11 report shows that SunGard MarketMap (15.18%), FactSet (12.60%), Morningstar (12.31%), Moody’s Analytics (11.70%) and McGraw-Hill Financial (10.25%) delivered the highest five-year growth rates among market data/analysis vendors with at least 25% of revenue coming from outside their base country. The report also indicates that Mid & Back-Office users, Corporations (non-trading) and Risk Managers showed the highest compound growth in demand over the last five years.

“2011 began with cautious optimism and, although it delivered mid-single digit growth, uncertainty in the Western European economies and late-year contraction by market data users caused 2011 to end on a pessimistic note,” says Douglas B. Taylor, Managing Partner of Burton-Taylor. “Core spend on market data/analysis was generally tempered in 2011, as much of the revenue growth was the result of price increases, currency conversions, and non-data related turnover such as transaction fees.”

“Pre-publication demand for our Complete report has been exceptionally strong,” Taylor says. “This is partly because the report has been expanded this year to include a full five-year trending of market share and demand across the Americas, EMEA and Asia, across all major purchasing segments, across all major product types, across all major user types and across all major institutional buyer types, and partly because both vendors and users are demanding more detailed strategic data with which to target new growth or efficiency opportunities, in these challenging market conditions.”
