FIBEP State of the Industry Survey 2014-2015

FIBEP, the world’s media intelligence federation, has released the results of the 4th edition of the annual State of the Industry Survey.

The 2014-2015 survey has many key findings that show a vibrant, growing and rapidly changing industry. Among the key takeaways in this year’s report are:

  • A vibrant industry: We can see that again, Media Intelligence continues to be a strong global industry throughout the world.
  • Optimism for 2016: 67% of respondents felt that the industry is on a growth curve. The sources of that growth come from a wide variety of services, but not from print media monitoring.
  • Monitoring dominates: Media monitoring (print, web, broadcast) represents around 60% of the total revenue. Social Media Monitoring represents 14% but grew fast compared to the previous year (+ 6 % overall).
  • Service growth: New technologies (SaaS), Social media and measurement services still remain the new growth areas for media monitors.
