Among the different market segments, custom content publishing segment is estimated to hold maximum share with 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.

The major drivers of the market include increase in online education, growth of e-books and need of primary healthcare. Primary healthcare is delivered by specialists in general medicine or internal medicine and are called Internists. The major factors restraining the market are the low adoption rate of online education in developing regions of the world, since a large fraction of population is not exposed to modern technology added to the decreasing number of students opting for medical specializations that brings a higher income.
