LONDON and NEW YORK, May 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Global index industry revenues increased 10% in 2020, reaching a record $4.1 billion, according to a new benchmark study published by Burton-Taylor International Consulting, part of TP ICAP ’s Parameta Solutions. The study provides a comprehensive analysis of the index industry, with detailed reviews of leading providers including MSCI, S&P Dow Jones Indices, FTSE Russell, Nasdaq, Qontigo, Bloomberg, Alerian, Intercontinental Exchange, Solactive, Morningstar, CRSP and SIX.
Index industry revenue increased across all segments in 2020, with the fastest growth occurring from index license fees based on assets under management which increased 11.6% to a record $2 billion. Subscription fee revenue grew just 1.9% to $1.4 billion in 2020.
Key findings in the report include:
- MSCI accounted for the greatest market share, accounting for 24.8% of total industry revenues and narrowly edging out S&P Dow Jones Indices which accounted for a market share of 24.2%. FTSE Russell accounted for 19.3% market share.
- Nasdaq reported the fastest growth in 2020, with revenue jumping 45.3% while Bloomberg index revenue has seen the highest growth since 2016 with a CAGR of 72%.
- ESG index revenues surged sharply in 2020 rising 21.7% while factor segment revenues increased by 16% over 2019 totals.
“A convergence of rising asset valuations, the trend towards passive investing strategies and investors’ desire for exposure to targeted indices continues to drive progress,” said Sean Eskildsen, an analyst at Burton-Taylor. “Index providers continued to see strong growth in 2020, as they expand their offerings to facilitate market demand, with extension in thematic, factor, and ESG indices leading the way,” he added.
