The Cookbook Publishing industry weathered the recession well as consumers splurged on cookbooks to eat and entertain at home instead of going out. Although cookbook publishers will compete with more online recipes over the next five years, emphasis on healthcare and heritage will continue to drive demand for cookbooks.
Companies in the Cookbook Publishing industry design and edit cookbooks. Cookbook publishers also engage in marketing activities and make distribution agreements with the operators in the Book, Magazine & Newspaper Wholesaling industry (IBISWorld report 42492). The industry does not include authors or self-publishers, who are part of the Performers and Creative Artists industry, (IBISWorld report 71151) or the Printing industry (IBISWorld report 32311).
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
