Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Book Publishing industry provides a range of services for authors including marketing, structural and grammatical editing, design and typesetting, sales and protecting intellectual property. The industry experienced considerable declines during the five years to 2014. Decreasing leisure time and weak growth in disposable income resulted in lower book sales, especially for print books.
