The UK Audiobook Publishing industry includes businesses involved in the design, marketing and distribution of audiobooks. Audiobook publishers hold rights to book titles and may publish content in solely audio form or, more commonly, in conjunction with print and e-book editions of the work. The industry is growing and its progress in recent years is encouraging when taking into account the difficult conditions that have characterised the wider UK Book Publishing industry (IBISWorld report J58.110). Over the five years through 2015-16, industry revenue is estimated to grow at a relatively strong compound annual rate of 6.2%.
Companies in this industry design, edit and market audiobooks. The industry does not include online-only publishers, authors or printers.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
