Newspaper Publishing in the US

The Newspaper Publishing industry, which is dependent on reader subscriptions and print advertising for revenue, has experienced chronic revenue declines as consumers and advertisers make the permanent shift to digital media. In the coming years, the industry will continue to lose advertising revenue in an increasingly fragmented media environment. Spurred by revenue declines, publishers will consolidate, restructure and adapt to new technologies to become more efficient.

The Newspaper Publishing industry produces and distributes print newspapers. Companies that solely publish online news are excluded from this industry.

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.
