The Spanish-Language Book Publishing industry has suffered along with the greater print media sector, but has benefited in recent years from economic recovery. Due to mounting pressure from both imports and alternate sources of media, the Spanish-Language Book Publishing industry will continue to face significant challenges in the five years to 2020. Changes in the Hispanic demographic are expected to heighten competition from English publications, while the increasing popularity of e-books will likely force industry players to diversify to remain competitive in the book-publishing sector. The rising number of immigrants and share of the Hispanic population in the United States, however, will keep the industry afloat. Continued demand and high profit margins on Spanish-language textbooks and references will keep profitability steady.
