Social Sciences Research Scope & Global Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, & Forecast 2015 - 2023


Market Scenario:


Regional Analysis of Social Sciences Research:

Social science is now big business in the UK, according to new research which shows that the sector is worth approximately USD 24.3 billion a year to the national economy. This figure is the collective economic value of social science teaching and research in UK universities (USD 4.8 billion a year) plus the costs that the financial sector, business corporations and public sector agencies spend on employing professional social scientists to mediate or translate academic research into their organizations (at least USD 19.4 billion a year).Sources argue that despite receiving just 8 per cent of Research and Development (R&D) funds nationally, and 12 per cent of the total research grants flowing to UK universities, the social science sector are punching well above its weight in economic terms, both locally and globally.

Across the world, rough estimates suggest that around 20 million people are either employed in university social science departments or are students in these disciplines. An additional 20 million professionals – working for governments, public agencies, major business corporations, consultants, civil society organizations and the media – make regular use of social science research in their work, the authors estimate.

Between 30-40 per cent of all UK University research takes place in the social sciences domain, providing answers to some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Yet the effectiveness of social scientists has often been decried.

Social science from Western countries continues to have the greatest global influence, but the field is expanding rapidly in Asia and Latin America, particularly in China and Brazil. In sub-Saharan Africa, social scientists from South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya produce 75% of academic publications. In South Asia, barring some centers of excellence in India, social sciences as a whole have low priority.
