The E-Book Publishing industry has grown moderately over the past five years. E-book sales surged on the heels of new mobile device introductions in the early years of the period. However, industry-relevant revenue has slowed over the five years as e-book sales have matured as a product category. In addition, there are signs that consumers may be tiring of digital media, and that many continue to consumer printed material, either entirely or in tandem with e-books, when seeking longer-form book content. Over the next five years, the industry will grow modestly. Following the initial surge, e-book adoption is expected to slow and the industry will grow mostly in line with overall publisher sales.
Companies in the E-Book Publishing industry design books that are already in print for a digital format, and discover, edit and design books that are published exclusively in digital formats. It does not include authors who self-publish (included in IBISWorld report 71151, Performers and Creative Artists).
