Book Printing Market – Segmentation

Leisure and lifestyle books dominated over a third of the total market share in 2018, growing at a CAGR of over 1% during the forecast period. Rapid changes in consumer lifestyle and exponential increase in marketing and advertising activities are having a positive impact on the growth and development of this segment in the global market. The use of expensive glossy paper and color printing technologies is one of the major factors contributing to the revenue of this segment in the global market.

The printed children’s book market is facing intense competition from several substitutes, some even backed by scientific research, to retain a significant share of time usage. The share of time use is split between several daily activities, including study and school time, toys, indoor and outdoor games, and an increasing amount of organized digital content for children.

The revenue channel segment in the global book printing market is divided into publishers and self-publishing. Self-publishing is the fastest growing segment in the global market, growing at a CAGR of around 17% over the forecast period. Self-publishing is the upcoming trend, which is gaining momentum among independent authors in the global market. Self-publishing is a very cost-effective way to publish a book because it removes the need for publishers and book agents in the marketplace.

This method encourages small freelance writers to market their work to a large group of consumers at a significantly lower price. The books are also available to consumers through the publisher’s online shopping websites as well as direct-to-consumer online publishing and distribution channels such as Amazon KDP, Draft2Digital, Barnes & Noble, and Pronoun.

Online sales accounted for more than 40% of the book distribution channel, while sales from mass merchants and bookstores accounted for the remaining share. The main reasons for the surge in online sales in major toy markets are the availability of variety and instant price comparison.
