Books Market Size Analysis Report by Product (Trade, Other), by Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa) And Segment Forecasts, 2018 - 2025

The global books market is expected to reach USD 124.2 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The increasing consumer spending supported by increasing income is expected to boost market growth.

Small, independent publishing houses are taking advantage of technological advancement and are printing books on demand. Companies such as IngramSpark and Kindle Direct Publishing are two such companies. These companies use small presses. Companies can also use technological innovation to enhance the reading experience for the consumer. For instance, J.K Rowling’s Pottermore, makes reading the book an entire visual experience and also involves the readers in the activities.

This industry based on product type is bifurcated into trade books and other books.. Most of the genres such as fiction, non-fiction, literature, young children are covered under this segment. The buying decision in case of this segment is with the consumer.

The other books segment includes educational publications. Additionally, majority of the buying decision in this segment is made by government authoritites or school administrators. The students now also have the option of renting textbooks, instead of buying them, which can restrain the growth of this industry
