Competition from online content and digital media will continue to expand, inhibiting growth for book, magazine and newspaper wholesalers. This declining industry will likely experience a shift as some wholesalers become logistics providers, where publishers and retailers select and purchase alternative bundles of services. The internet will capitalize on the turnover of books and periodicals in more dynamic sectors such as law and science, where information quickly becomes obsolete.
This industry includes firms primarily engaged in book, magazine, newspaper and periodical distribution and wholesaling. Map, pamphlet and antique book distributers and wholesalers are also included in this industry, while online and other paper product distributors or wholesalers are excluded.
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.
