OSPREY, Fla., March 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Burton-Taylor International Consulting LLC, a recognized leader in information industry market research, strategy and business consulting, is pleased to announce the publication of its new report indicating the 2015 global spend for financial market data/analysis or news was up 1.17%, to reach US$26.63 billion. The 2015 growth was stunted by a strong US Dollar, which may have cost the industry as much as US$778 million.

At 33.33% and 24.29% respectively, the gap widened slightly between the market share leaders Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters.  Although Thomson Reuters contracted nearly 6.0%, revenue was flat on a constant currency basis and the company showed positive net sales in each quarter of 2015.  S&P Capital IQ + SNL held the third position with USD1,269.9m revenue and an industry leading 13.63% year-on-year growth, half of which due to acquisition.

Risk & Compliance users and Investment Bankers/Corporate Financiers have been the fastest growing customer groups the past five years, while Pricing, Reference & Valuation products have shown the greatest increase in demand with an average of 8.57% per year over the same period.

"The real headlines are that currency robbed the industry of 3.00% growth in 2015 and that regulatory-driven demand for data feeding the middle and back-office continues to be strong," says Douglas B. Taylor, Founder & Managing Partner of Burton-Taylor.  "M&A activity within the industry was also a headline, as market data/analysis providers look for differentiating, unique assets to set them apart from competition."
