The Global Newspaper Publishing industry has faced rising external competition from digital media formats, which have lowered the industry's subscription rates and revenue base in the past five years. The explosion of online entertainment and news, fueled by the rapid adoption of smart mobile devices and high-speed internet, has attracted a greater share of advertising spending, the industry's principal revenue stream. Readers are also opting for free news articles provided by online-only publications that have been able to capture younger demographics, particularly in mature economies.
The Global Newspaper Publishing industry produces and distributes newspapers, which includes gathering news; writing news columns, feature stories and editorials; printing newspapers; and selling and preparing advertisements. These enterprises may publish newspapers in print or electronic form, but the industry excludes publications that only publish online.
