In addition, a near-record twenty new CDP vendors were added to the report.   These were split about evenly between CDP start-ups and established businesses that added a CDP capability to existing products.

Industry growth is also reflected by a record eight CDP acquisitions and mergers during the period.  Most buyers were customer engagement software vendors seeking a CDP to connect siloed components of multi-channel suites.

Growth was especially strong in the Asia Pacific region, whose share of industry vendors grew from 13% one year ago to 17%, share of employment grew from 10% to 14%, and share of funding grew from just 6% to 25%.  Europe-based companies fell from 39% to 38% of vendors, from 32% to 28% of employment, and from 14% to 12% of funding over the same period.
