Database & Directory Publishing in the US

The internet has created new channels for directory companies to distribute business information to the market. However, consumers are increasingly turning to the services of online-only companies like search engines and digital versions over print, negatively affecting revenue and profit. Operators have been forced to adapt, and incumbent companies are competing with the lower margins and advertising prices of independent companies as well as external competitors.

This industry includes companies that publish organized compilations of information or facts. These collections may be published in print or electronic form. Electronic versions can be provided directly to customers by the publisher or offered through online services or third-party vendors. However, businesses that publish solely on the internet are excluded from this industry.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
