Bowker: Print Book Production Slipped In 2013

Posted at 7:38AM Wednesday 06 Aug 2014

Traditional Print Book Production Dipped Slightly in 2013, Says Bowker New report also shows Print-on-Demand experienced a steep decline after years of stunning growth.

Production of print books by traditional publishers slowed in the United States in 2013, declining from 309,957 titles in 2012 to a projected 304,912 titles in 2013. The two percent decrease reverses the sector's growth in 2012 over 2011, but points to a relatively stable market for print works despite competition from ebooks.
