Data Marketplace Types

Data marketplaces can be categorized into different types based on who can use them and the data categories listed there. As such, there are private data marketplaces, which can only be used internally by members of an organization, vs. public data marketplaces, which are accessible to anyone on the internet (although a login is sometimes required). There are healthcare data marketplaces, on which pharma, HCP, and medical imagery datasets are listed, vs. financial data marketplaces, mostly used by traders and hedge funds to exchange financial data.

We've listed the main types of data marketplace so you can understand who's using them, the data available on them, how to access them, and some real-world examples of data marketplace companies.
