This is Scientific, technical & medical information

This is a large, complicated, fragmented market, providing information for academia, medical professionals, corporate R&D and government.
Information providers range from learned societies, to international publishers, to oil service companies, to mapping firms, to consumer facing health websites to aggregators of information for use at the point of care. Services range from journal publishing to drug discovery informatics solutions.
Including geospatial, seismic, R&D informatics, consumer health and point of care medical information, the total STM information market was $30bn in 2013 with a forecast growth of 4-6% in 2014. The market could be much larger – a $160bn market if we include all the markets that the larger STM information firms are currently operating in.
The largest segment, publishing information, grew at 3.2% in 2013. After years of stable growth and development of search and indexing tools the market is being redefined by the largest publishers who are looking to leverage their content into the workflow of professionals. With library budgets being restrained (the days of 7.3% CAGR growth are over) more content owners are looking for new markets for their products.
