The Business Research Company Global Book Publishers Market Report 2022 – Global Market Size, Trends and Forecasts 2022-2026

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, February 9, 2022 / — E-book sales are growing rapidly in established markets in the United States and Europe. E-books have generated a higher revenue share than physical print in developed markets such as the US and UK. According to PWC, total global book publisher revenue will grow at a CAGR of 1.7% over the forecast period. Although the physical book publishing industry continues to contract (-2.8%), this decline is offset by the growth of e-books, which are expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.7% over the next forecast period. Growing consumer preference for digital versions is expected to have a significant impact on the book publishers market growth during this period.

Book publisher market trends include the print-on-demand (POD) model which is becoming popular among book publishers as it allows them to control printing and inventory costs. The print-on-demand model is characterized by printing the book only after securing the order. Due to high publishing costs, authors and publishers prefer to keep their work in digital form. Major print-on-demand book service providers include Blurb, CreateSpace, Lightning Source, and Lulu. Amazon also aims to fully integrate POD technology. It promises to print a book within 2 hours of ordering. Self-publishers have the most to gain from this technology.
