Research Strategy

For this research on the market size of the IT Enterprise Software Buying Insights market, we leveraged the most reputable sources of information available in the public domain, including data insights and market research databases like Statista, Allied Market Research, Globe Newswire, Industry Arc, Grandview Research, Market Research Future, Research and Markets, Market Watch, etc. These sources gave us the overall market size for the IT Enterprise Software market, but none of the reports have data about the Buying Insights segment that we could use to calculate its market size value. As indicated previously by our team, the data was very limited for the Buying Insights segment in the public domain.

    Analysis Through Key Players

We analyzed the example provided, Gartner Peer Insights, and noticed it was described as a "software review platform," "crowd-sourced IT review sites," and "peer review sites." It was never called a "buying insights software." We searched for the market size using those terms through the sources mentioned above and others like Verified Market Research, Datanyze, and Research Reports World. However, while we found similar reports like the Global Consumer Ratings and Reviews Software market, the Online Review Management Software market, and the Technology Review Platforms Market, none of these provided the market size in the IT Enterprise market. Also, every quantitative data was hidden behind a paywall.

From the information provided to us, we understand that the IT Enterprise Software Buying Insights market is a segment of the IT Enterprise Software Market, that the list of product categories provided are part of the IT Enterprise Software Market, and that Gartner Peer Insights is an example of IT Enterprise Software Buying Insights platform.

With this in mind, and based on the information found, our next strategy was looking for Gartner Peer Insights' key competitors and market leaders in IT Enterprise Software Review Platforms, as the Buying Insights market is often called. Our plan was to use their combined annual revenue to approximate the market size. We assumed that as market leaders they might have the largest market shares and would give us an overall look at the market's value. Then, we used this value to calculate the Buying Insights market share in the overall IT Enterprise Software market size. Finally, that market share was used to estimate the market size that Buying Insights has in each IT Enterprise Software market product category.

Calculations

    Buying Insights Market Size and Share

We found the competitors of Gartner Peer Insights and leaders in IT Software Review Platforms and their revenues in Zoominfo. Forrester's annual revenue for 2020 is $450 million, Gartner's is $4 billion, G2 Crowd's is $77 million, IT Central Station's $19 million, SpiceWorks' is $55 million, Software Advice's $42 million, Capterra's is under $5million, and TrustRadius' is $15 million.

Their combined annual revenue is ($450 million + $4 billion + $77 million + $19 million + $55 million + $42 million + $5million + $15 million) = $4,663,000,000 or $4.663 billion. We assumed that as the key players, this represents a large part of the Buying Insights or IT Software Review Platforms market size.

Using the Global IT Enterprise Software market size of $415.4 billion in 2020, and assuming that the combined market size generated by the top competitors in the IT Software Peer Review Platforms or Buying Insights represented the majority of the market's revenue, we can say that the Buying Insights was approximately 1.12% of the overall IT Enterprise Software Market in 2020: ($4,663,000,000/$415,400,000,000)*100 = 1.12253 or 1.12%

    Buying Insights Market Size in the IT Enterprise Software Product Categories

Then, since the product categories are part of the IT Enterprise Software Market, we assumed that the percentage represented by Buying Insights platforms in the main market is similar across the different product categories within the market.

We searched for the overall global market size for each category and determined the market size of the Buying Insights market in that category using the market share we found before, 1.12%. The formula followed in each category was: Overall Product Category Market Size x 1.12% = Buying Insights market size within that product category.

For consistency in our results, in cases where the market size for 2020 wasn't available, we used the year available and the CAGR to calculate its 2020 revenue with an online CAGR calculator and included the screenshots of every CAGR calculation in a document.

Additionally, for easier access, and because we always used the same formula mentioned above, the results for each market size calculation were included in our findings, next to the overall market size source for that category.

Finally, we tried to obtain the overall market size for 2020 for every product category listed, especially the ones indicated as a high priority. Unfortunately, in some cases, like the IT Infrastructure & Operations Management market, the common name for that category was different from the one provided to us, it wasn't available publicly or was hidden behind a paywall.
