The Religious Book Publishing industry suffered when consumers lost faith in the economy and thus dialed back on their expenses. However, the downturn is expected to reverse as revenue starts to gain back some of its losses through 2018. During the next five years, more consumers will purchase e-readers, thus hindering growth as printed books are in less demand.
The Religious Book Publishing industry carries out the design, editing and marketing activities necessary for producing and distributing books of a religious nature. These establishments may publish books in print, electronic or audio form. Online-only publishing is excluded (see IBISWorld report OD4579, the E-book Publishing industry).
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.
