Publishing Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

Based on our research output, there has been a negative impact on the market growth during and post COVID-19 era. The growing impact of e-books is notably driving the publishing market growth, although factors such as low revenue from newspapers and traditional book publishing may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the publishing industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Publishing Market Key Driver

The growing impact of e-books is one of the primary factors that is driving the publishing market growth. The publishing landscape and reading behavior has been reshaped by the emergence of e-books, smart devices, and online subscription models. Content publishing has become easier, quicker, and more economical. The ease of accessing multiple books at a time and the availability of e-books on e-commerce sites have contributed to the rapid adoption of e-books. 

Publishing Market Key Trend

The growing popularity of print on demand (POD) is one of the major publishing market trends that will impact market growth. With the increasing penetration of the Internet, publishing companies are focusing more on printing limited copies of new titles. The adoption of the POD model will help publishers reduce wastage and enable authors to print their work at a lesser cost by eliminating the requirement for large offset print runs.

Publishing Market Key Challenge

The low revenue from newspapers and traditional book publishing will be a major challenge for the publishing market. The newspaper publishing market has benefitted from digital advertising, but only to a certain extent. The digital platform provides ample space for advertising, which has reduced its value and the revenue generated from it. For the newspaper publishers, profits earned from digital advertisements are far less than the losses in print advertising, resulting in overall negative revenue growth in advertising. This decline in advertising revenue for print newspapers is attributed to the drop in the number of classified advertising, which has shifted to the online platform with specialized websites providing different services. Therefore, some of the newspaper companies are planning to shift their business model completely to digital and cease print publications.
