Although it may not be immediately obvious because of the fact that iText’s presence in companies and products is unobtrusive, research from Adobe revealed at the PDF Technical Conference in San José that iText is the source of 8% of the world’s PDF documents. The top two positions were hogged by tech giants Adobe (obviously) and Microsoft, with Ghostscript coming third.
The field of PDF libraries, creators and renderers remains very diverse and healthy. Competition is tight, which ultimately benefits the end user and keeps inspiring us to remain ahead. We appreciate the PDF community’s trust in our libraries and aim to strengthen that even more in 2016.
