Burton-Taylor Report Shows 2014 Exchange Revenue Will Hit Record Level, Topping USD26.8b

Burton-Taylor indicates Exchange Market Data & Index segment fastest growing; Intercontinental Exchange overall largest industry player; ASX delivering highest operating margin

Burton-Taylor International Consulting LLC, a recognized leader in information and financial industry market research, strategy and business consulting, is pleased to announce the publication of their new report showing the 2014 global revenue for exchanges was up 3.41% over 2013, reaching USD26.84 billion.  At 11.46%, Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) holds the overall market share lead over CME Group at 11.26%.

The 86-page report, which is the first of its kind for the exchange industry, sizes the overall market and key segments globally and regionally, delivers market share and profile data for leading players, calculates segment growth rates and details market share evolution.

The study shows that ICE, London Stock Exchange Group and Japan Exchange Group delivered the industry’s highest five-year growth rates.  The report also shows that demand for exchange data and services is gaining momentum, as overall revenue in the industry has rebounded to surpass the previous high in 2011.

“Exchanges have done well to bring their industry back from the nearly USD2b contraction in 2012,” says Douglas B Taylor, Managing Partner of Burton-Taylor. “Although the Trading, Clearing & Settlement segment has not yet fully recovered, the demand increases for Exchange Market Data & Indexes and for Other Exchange Business Activities have more than made up the gap.”

“The industry has gone through significant change, but performance remains strong,” says report contributor Chris Porter, Director at Porter Walford Consulting. “With operating margins near 50% across the industry, and key players like ASX, CME Group, Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing and Singapore Exchange performing well above 50%, the future looks positive.”

“As the Exchange community changes, and lines begin to blur between the demand for data and technology supplied by Exchanges and by traditional data vendors, our clients stepped up requests for a detailed Exchange industry report, which we are happy to deliver,” adds Taylor.
