CEPIC, PACA & the University of Heidelberg: First Global Survey of the Picture Industry
The stock image market has never been studied at a fully global scale. Our current knowledge about the size and other characteristics of this market depends on the educated guess of experienced business insiders rather than on systematic research.
CEPIC, PACA (Picture Archive Council of America) and the Heidelberg Research Group on the Global Stock Image Market are carrying out the first-ever global survey of the picture industry. This survey includes more than 2,900 stock image agencies and archives worldwide.
The study seeks answers to the following questions:
- What is the size of the global picture trade?
- How do picture agencies reach their markets?
- What are appropriate business models? Where are the new markets?
Please help us to create a comprehensive understanding of the global picture market by participating in this survey until 08 July 2012. To complete this online-survey please click on the link below or copy and paste it into the
