Key Highlights

The publishing market consists of books, newspaper and magazines segments.

The newspaper segment is valued as the sum total of all revenues gained from the sale of newspapers including those gained through circulation, subscription (inc. online subscription), and advertising revenue.

The magazine segment value is calculated as the revenues generated by publishers from B2C sales of copies of their products, and does not include advertising revenues.

Any currency conversions used in the creation of this report have been calculated using constant 2017 annual average exchange rates.

The global publishing market had total revenues of $261.2bn in 2017, representing a compound annual rate of change (CARC) of -0.4% between 2013 and 2017.

The books segment was the market's most lucrative in 2017, with total revenues of $121bn, equivalent to 46.3% of the market's overall value.

Declines in this market are being driven by the contraction seen in the newspapers and magazines segments of the market. Newspapers are being impacted by the fall of advertising spend, both in print and digital form.
