  2. 2. The business information market has been growing in the 5% to 7% range for the pastseveral years. However, total revenue growth in 2009 is projected to come in at 2% to$45.9 billion, the lowest since these markets collectively posted 1.8% growth in 2004.While the projected growth for 2009 may be a disappointment compared to prior years,the fact that the industry is still growing at a time when so many businesses are falteringis a good sign. As the information revolution advances, the emphasis has moved awayfrom the mass delivery of data and the technology used to accomplish that to findingmeaning in information. Business leaders, who have more information flying at themthan ever before, need to drill down to find the bits of knowledge that will make adifference to their company’s bottom line. This transition creates opportunity for astutebusiness information providers that can develop added-value solutions.Therefore, the long term outlook is positive. Simba Information projects that the marketwill grow at a compound annual rate of 4.4% through 2012 reaching $53.5 billion.The financial and marketing information segments account for 55.3% of the total marketfor online business information. Both segments continue to post healthy sales, withfinancial information recording $16 billion in 2008 and marketing $8.5 billion. However,Simba anticipates both segments will feel the brunt of the economic slowdown. Growthin financial information will slow to 1.3% in 2009 and marketing growth will slow to 2.4%in 2009.The market for electronic health care information continues to be a bright spot, growingat a compound annual rate of 10.1% between 2006 and 2008. In health care, the use ofPDAs is continuing to grow, and handhelds have become a necessity for clinicians whoneed immediate access to research and data.The newly released Simba report provides an overview and financial outlook forbusiness information markets based on specific research and analysis of the leadingcompetitors and market performance in six industry verticals.TABLE OF CONTENTSTable of ContentsMethodologyExecutive SummaryChapter 1: Market Overview Introduction Market Structure
