Market Synopsis

Web scraping data segmentation to cement its dominance in the alternative data market

The web scraping segment represented the lion's share of the overall alternative data market value generated worldwide. Web scrapping data is frequently used to track e-commerce activities, public commentary, press releases, changes in corporate websites, and government filings. Increasing competition across alternative data providers, demand for improved quality of data, and rising outsourcing of web scrapping in order to effectively use resources are expected to surge the demand for web scraping data. However, organizations utilizing web scrapping are constrained by the associated compliance risk due to the ever-growing regulations associated with the practice of protecting private data. However, the steady growth of web scrapping data is credited to the practice of financial firms that calculate potential risks as well as the legal costs associated with web scraping.

Early Adoption of Alternative Data for Investment Management to Ensure North American Market Dominance

As alternative data continues to play a vital role in investment decisions, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) ensures fair and efficient markets in the changing financial landscape. Alternative data markets here enjoy wide data protection under U.S. privacy and data security laws, while public personal information, such as non-confidential information of a non-intimate nature, is readily used. Furthermore, Asia Pacific witnessed a higher growth rate throughout the forecast period. A steadily improving economy is expected to drive the market here.
