Book Stores in the US

Changing consumer behavior and increasing competition from e-commerce and alternative retailers like mass merchandisers have been hampering growth over the past five years for the Book Stores industry. Although these trends are forecast to continue over the next five years, some operators will benefit from increasing demand for new technologies, such as e-readers. The book store companies that can keep up with consumer and technology trends will fare well in the coming years, while the continued decline in physical book sales will keep the overall industry in decline.

Companies in this industry primarily retail a broad range of books, newspapers and periodicals including trade books, textbooks, magazines, paperbacks and religious books. These goods are purchased from domestic (and in some cases international) manufacturers and wholesalers. Operators then retail these goods, through their stores, to the general public. This industry excludes retailers that operate primarily as used merchandise stores or electronic shopping and mail-order houses.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
