Summer 2024 Reports: 7% of All Products & Services on G2 Recognized as Leaders or High Performers

July 3, 2024

Summer has arrived and so have our G2 Summer 2024 Reports!  The world of B2B software and services moves fast, so in addition to our real-time category Grids on G2.com, we also publish quarterly Market Reports, detailing the latest and greatest rankings. 

With a quick log-in to my.G2.com, you can dive into nearly 23,000 reports – filtering by category (1,200+ of them!), company segment, and geographic region, across eight different report types –  to find precisely what you’re looking for. 

Across these thousands of reports, 11% of all vendors on G2 are represented, with just 7% of all products and services achieving a “Leader” or “High Performer” badge! This recognition is well-earned, rooted in the authentic voice of real customers (using G2’s unique scoring methodology). 

Now, let’s take a look at what’s behind these numbers — which vendors and products won big, saw the greatest improvement, and other trends observed over the past quarter.

The Categories Growing and Emerging on G2

While 1,227 categories are represented in G2’s Summer 2024 reports, our marketplace features even more – over 2,000 categories! And our Market Research team takes pride in ensuring these categories are up to date, so our marketplace is a true reflection of what’s happening in software.

So, separate from the report leaders we’ve already discussed to this point, let’s pause to take a moment and explore category trends over the past quarter. This is something you can also peruse our State of Software report series for — as we’ve been examining which categories experienced the most growth in terms of new products added (in addition to lots of other trends across the software landscape). 

With that said, let’s dive in to see what categories on G2 saw the most product growth since Spring 2042 Reports! Synthetic Media continued to hold at #1 for the third quarter in a row, adding the most products yet again (33!). Beyond Synthetic Media, other AI categories are growing rapidly, like AI Chatbots and AI Writing Assistants, indicating the AI innovation wave will continue. We also see more traditional and vertical categories like Email Marketing and Construction Management grow. It’s clear the SaaS landscape is ever-evolving and expanding!

Since the release of our last report, G2 introduced 15 new categories, including several in the services space — like Sage Resellers, Oracle Resellers, and DataRobot Consulting Services. 

These new categories represent emerging areas where there are now enough products or services to deem a brand new category on G2. However, it’s worth noting that it typically takes time for new categories to mature to a point where they feature their own live Grids and quarterly reports. 

New Categories Added to G2

  • Sage Resellers - Sage resellers work with Sage Software to resell its products and services, often providing customizations specific to each buyer.
  • Oracle Resellers - Oracle resellers work with Oracle to resell its products and services, often providing customizations specific to each buyer.
