Top 6 Vendors in the Global Consumer Book Publishing Market from 2016-2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top six leading vendors in their recent global consumer book publishing market report until 2020. This research report also lists 11 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.


The consumer book publishing market in the Americas was valued at USD 25.08 billion in 2015 and is likely to grow at a CAGR of 1.04% during the forecast period to reach USD 26.41 billion by 2020.


The adoption of digital book publishing is gaining higher traction and is being adopted by the larger population of all age groups, reducing the gaps between the generations. The US accounted for the largest revenue share in both the global book publishing market and global consumer book publishing market. Countries in South America, such as Brazil and Mexico, are saturated in terms of print book publishing. However, they have high growth potential for consumer eBooks, owing to the improving broadband infrastructure.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global consumer book publishing market is highly competitive due to the presence of numerous vendors. Intense competition, consumer spending pattern, demographic trends, and frequent changes in consumer preferences present significant risk to vendors. Vendors are competing on the basis of digital content, app availability, product differentiation, portfolio, and pricing. This competition is expected to intensify during the forecast period with an increase in product extensions.

Ujjwal Doshi, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on publishing and advertising, says, “Vendors are also investing in designing, planning, developing, branding, expanding existing products, and acquiring new players in the market. Technological innovations and creativity play a significant role in driving the market growth. Therefore, to remain competitive in the market, vendors not only need to develop new ideas and technologies, but also stay up-to-date with the emerging technologies and current affairs that could influence their service lines.”
