Marketing Technology Landscape Supergraphic (2018): Martech 5000 (actually 6,829)

As a marketer sometimes it feels like technology is getting a little overwhelming. Well, it actually is! Check out's infographics  from this year and a few years past. Good to know it's not just you, right?

While that represents “only” 27% growth over last year’s landscape, which mapped a grand total of 5,381 solutions, the percentage of growth belies the absolute scale of this space.

To appreciate the magnitude of martech’s diversity (and the effort behind this project), the size of the 2018 landscape is equivalent to all of the marketing tech landscapes we assembled from 2011 through 2016 added together:
