Among the different market segments, the custom content publishing segment is estimated to hold the maximum share with a 57% market share in the total general medicine market. The reason for its high share is the price of publishing custom content material, which is quite high as compared to any other publishing. This is followed by the market for online reference tools such as WebMD (Medscape), MDconsult, Micromedex among many others. Most popular online reference platforms have dedicated subscriptions, which have thus accounted for steady revenue generation. E-books and printed textbooks & reference books account for the third largest share in the general medicine education market.
