About This Report


Book and magazine wholesalers are the middlemen between publishers and retailers. New technologies and wholesaler bypass are taking their toll on the industry. Industry activity and performance is affected by, among other things: the underlying demand for printed books and magazines, the way in which publishers distribute their products, and the way retailers acquire them.

The industry is expected to generate revenue of over $1.5 billion in 2010-11. Revenue is forecast to contract at an average annualised real rate of 3.0% in the five years through 2010-11.

Companies in this industry wholesale books, newspapers and periodicals (which include consumer magazines). Book and magazine wholesalers distribute publications to book retailers, professional sectors, book clubs, mail order publications and higher education institutions, generally with minimum or no further development and processing of the product.

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.
