How Much Money The Biggest Publishers Actually Make

Posted at 8:34AM Tuesday 17 Jun 2014

Over the past ten years, sales at the largest publishers in the world have leveled as the book industry felt the effects of recession and of the ebook revolution.

According to a new analysis from DBW-partner Publishers Lunch, the worldwide revenues of the largest publishers except Macmillan have ranged from about $8.6 billion to $9.7 billion since 2006. Profits on those sales — before depreciation and amortization — have ranged from $735 million to $1 billion.
