Burton-Taylor Financial Market Data/Analysis Global Share & Segment Sizing 2013

2012 saw an uptick in spending in the Americas but greater weakness in Europe and signs of slowing growth in Asia.

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 2012 global spend for market data and analysis was up 2.34% versus 2011, to reach US$25.53 billion. This is the first time market data/analysis spend has topped US$25b, although much of the 2012 growth may be attributed to vendor price increases. Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters were the overall market share leaders with 30.82% and 29.48% respectively, while Interactive Data Corporation held the market share lead in the fastest growing segment (Pricing, Reference & Valuation Data).

The 163 page Burton-Taylor Financial Market Data/Analysis Global Share & Segment Sizing 2013 - Key Competitors 2008-12, Global Market Share 2008-12, Global Segment Sizing 2008-12, Global Product Mix 2008-12, Global User Mix 2008-12, Global Institution Mix 2008-12 report shows that SunGard MarketMap (12.25%), S&P Capital IQ (10.80%), FactSet (10.14%), Moody’s Analytics (9.85%), Bloomberg (8.22%) and Morningstar (8.18%) 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 the Commodities & Energy segment showed the highest compound growth in demand over the last five years and that Platts has been the biggest gainer in that space.

“2012 saw an uptick in spending in the Americas but greater weakness in Europe and signs of slowing growth in Asia,” says Douglas B. Taylor, Managing Partner of Burton-Taylor. “Like 2011, core revenue growth in the industry was more the result of price increases and non-data related turnover, such as transaction fees, than by increased demand.”

“Demand for our 'Complete' report remains exceptionally strong, as industry participants, analysts and consultants tell us it has become their benchmark measure,” Taylor says. “The high demand is also because, at the request of our clients, we have separated the fast-growing Pricing, Reference and Valuation Data space in this year’s report and included key player Markit, which makes it easier for both vendors and users to target new growth or efficiency opportunities, in these challenging market conditions.”
