Demand for Company Research Services industry services is tied to corporate profit and research budget levels. Over the past five years, growth in corporate profit and the number of businesses in the United States have fueled industry growth. Uncertainty in financial markets has also driven new demand for industry services, as companies seek out additional information before making investments in the business environment. Stronger demand for industry services has also fostered growth in profitability during the five-year period. Industry operators have increased the price of research tools and have developed new service offerings to increase their market share. Company research services are expected to continue growing over the next five years, with rising corporate profit and a growing number of US businesses primarily driving growth. Additionally, the industry is expected to benefit from stronger demand from finance and insurance industries, which account for the largest share of revenue.
