Global Newspaper Publishing

Global Newspaper Publishing

The Global Newspaper Publishing industry has faced rising external competition from digital media formats, which have lowered the industry's subcription rates and revenue base in the past five years. Online entertainment and news has attracted a greater share of advertising spending, and readers have increasingly opted for the free content provided by online-online publications. These trends apply primarily to the newspaper industries in developed economies; in emerging markets, rising incomes and literacy rates have fueled growth in newspaper publishing, partially offsetting the global industry's overall decline. Nevertheless, digital media consumption is anticipated to accelerate in the next five years, leading traditional newspaper publishers to restructure to adapt but likely preventing them from achieving substantial growth.

The Global Newspaper Publishing industry produces and distributes newspapers, which includes gathering news; writing news columns, feature stories and editorials; printing newspapers; and selling and preparing advertisements. These enterprises may publish newspapers in print or electronic form, but the industry excludes publications that only publish online.

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.
