The Software Publishing industry has grown steadily over the past five years, driven by increased online connectivity and the emergence of new technology. Increased access to high-speed internet has encouraged the development of software to take advantage of cloud computing, along with new hardware, such as smartphones and tablets. Smartphones and tablet software development has increased strongly, with new products being developed to carry out functions that were once the domain of PCs and gaming consoles. Industry revenue is forecast to rise at a compound annual rate of 8.3% over the five years through 2015-16, to reach $2.1 billion.
Software publishers create and distribute ready-made (non-customised) computer software.
