Global Newspaper Publishing - Industry Market Research Report

Global Newspaper Publishing

The Global Newspaper Publishing industry has endured rising external competition from digital media formats, which has lowered the industry's revenue base over the five years to 2019. The explosion of online entertainment and news, fueled by the rapid adoption of mobile devices and high-speed internet, has attracted a greater share of advertising spending, which until recently was the industry's principal revenue stream. Competing trends between emerging regions and mature economies have pushed and pulled the industry over the past five years. Since publications in the wealthier economies generate the bulk of industry revenue, their decline has placed significant downward pressure on industry performance over the past five years. Meanwhile, newspapers have had some room for growth in emerging countries, as rising income and literacy levels increase demand for printed media and advertising. The threat of online media and the exodus of advertising revenue are anticipated to continue over the five years to 2024.

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.
