Stamford, Conn. - May 14, 2009 - The school market will continue to be challenging in 2009 for publishers and providers of instructional materials, with the market for educational materials projected to decline 4.3% to $8.3 billion, according to new research from media industry forecast and analysis firm Simba Information.
Simba’s most recent strategic market report, Publishing for the PreK-12 Market 2009-2010, examines the challenging dynamics of the school market, providing insight and key guideposts for navigating uncertain market waters, including:
“Simba believes the federal stimulus funding and budget allocations will inject much-needed help to cash-strapped school districts that will thaw frozen spending on educational materials, but the full effect of this boost is unlikely to be realized until 2010 or even 2011,” said Kathy Mickey, senior analyst and managing editor of the Education Group at Simba. “The slowdown in the national economy shut down most school spending on instructional materials in mid-2008, resulting in an estimated 2.7% industry decline to $8.6 billion in 2008.”
