Bookselling Market Report 2013

Summary

Table of Contents

This Key Note Market Update revisits the UK market for bookselling, which was last analysed in 2012. Consumer titles represent the largest sector of the market, as this particular segment consists of mainstream and popularised titles. Other sectors include academic and professional books; and school books, such as textbooks and English language teaching (ELT) aids. According to the latest figures released from the Publishers Association (PA), sales of books in the UK increased by 4% in 2012, against industry expectations following the market’s decline in 2011, when sales dropped by 2%. The majority of this growth has been down to the continuing popularity of e-books, with sales of e-readers — such as the Amazon Kindle, the Nook and the Kobo — all performing particularly well over the past year. As a result, sales of digital books have gone from strength-to-strength, enjoying double-digit growth over the past 5 years since their initial launch on the market back in 2008. The overall growth across book sales is also likely to be down to price increases, with further data from the PA showing that volume sales of books actually observed year-on-year declines between 2008 and 2012.
