Executive Summary
Book Publishers publish atlases, religious books, school textbooks, encyclopedias, technical manuals, maps and travel guide books. The book publishers market is highly concentrated and the top four publishers generally publish more than 46% of the books in the industry. Apart from established publishers, many authors also publish their works through independent production houses.
The global book publishers market is expected to grow froto $137 billion in 2020. E-books sales is growing rapidly in established markets of the USA and Europe. EBooks are estimated to generate a higher share of revenues than the physical print division by 2018 in developed markets such as the US and UK . According to PWC total global book publisher’s revenue will increase, growing at a CAGR 1.7% . Although the physical book publishers industry continues to shrink (-2.8%), it is more than offset by growth in e-books which are predicted to grow at a CAGR of 11.7% in the forecast period. Increasing consumer preference for the digital versions are believed to play a crucial role in this expansion.
The top five competitors in the market made up only 14% of the total market in 2016. Pearson PLC. is the largest publisher followed by Wolters Kluwer, and China South Publishing & Media Group Co Ltd. The Print on Demand (POD) model is characterized by printing the book only after an order is secured. Till then, owing to high publishing costs, the writers prefer to keep their work in digital form. Interquest estimates that about 15% of the total books printed in America are currently printed through POD . Amazon too aims to fully integrate the POD technology. It promises to print a book within 2 hours of the order. Self-publishers stand to gain the most due to this technology.
