Software Publishing in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Software Publishing in Canada

Over the past five years, large software publishers eagerly bought smaller publishers with specialties in growing software niches. These acquisitions were necessary for operators to compete in an increasingly diverse array of software platforms. Acquisition activity will become more robust over the next five years as continued technological development and innovation lead to new products. Furthermore, mobile computing devices will continue to open up new platforms for software publishers. Industry operators will also increasingly use subscription-based sales models, which will help stabilize cash flows.

Software publishers disseminate licences to customers for the right to execute software on their own computers. Publishers market and distribute software products but may also design the software, produce support materials and provide support services.

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.
