The Book, Magazine and Periodical Printing industry has a long history in China. Despite growing competition from the rapid development of online publishing, China's printing sector has maintained steady growth in the past five years. Therefore, it is not likely that digital publications will completely displace printed materials in China. One of the industry's indispensable advantages is that readers can enjoy printed materials anywhere without the help of any other equipment.
In the five years to 2015, industry revenue is expected to increase 7.1% to total $19.0 billion, including a 3.9% increase in 2015, alone.
The Book, Magazine and Periodical Printing industry in China prints books, newspapers, periodicals, calendars, pictures, maps and other publications. Binding, record and digital medium reproduction are not included.
