PRESS RELEASE: 15th November 2011
The UK B2B Information Market
Limited growth expected in 2012 for the first time since 2008
After declining revenues in 2009, the B2B information market began to stabilise in 2010 although there was still a marginal decline of 0.5% in total market size.
In 2011, the weakest market segments – business press and business directories – are expected to continue to face revenue decreases. Some limited growth across all market sectors is expected in 2012 for the first time since 2008 but, given the recent downgrading of UK economic forecasts and advertising expenditure forecasts, this growth could be quickly curtailed.
The UK B2B Information Market, published by IRN Research on the 15th November 2011, covers trade journals/magazines, directories, business information services, and trade conferences/ exhibitions. The contents pages from the report are included as an Appendix.
The full report, The UK B2B Information Market 2011, is available in PDF format directly from
IRN Research. 66 pages. Price: £350/€410/$550
