This report provides an exclusive market sizing of the
financial market data industry for 2004 and the first forecasts of market
data vendor revenue and user accesses for 2005.
The industry shows no signs of forcefully breaking out of
its malaise that started with the end of the dot com bubble
era in April 2000 and the subsequent ongoing retrenchment
of the financial services industry.
This report provides breakdowns of revenues and data
accesses for major financial market data revenues by major
geographic regions for the years 2003 and 2004 based on
Shore's own research methods and an exclusive forecast of
market data revenue performance for the 2005 calendar year,
along with an analysis of the overall performance of the
financial market data sector, an analysis of why and how
each of the major market data vendors is performing and
recommendations on what market data vendors will have to do
to perform more effectively in the years ahead.
