What Nielsen data tells us about ebook cannibalisation and the total size of the publishing market

What Nielsen data tells us about ebook cannibalisation and the total size of the publishing market | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it

"Overall, Nielsen’s latest round of market data shows us that publishing is still very much a market in transition. The growth in digital reading has shaken up the mix of what consumers buy and where they read it, especially in the category of adult trade fiction.

The remarkable growth of adult fiction ebooks is, however, both an opportunity and a danger for publishers. As we saw in the blog post we posted earlier this week, the industry’s over-dependence on adult fiction to drive digital sales means that a disappointing performance in this category can have an exaggerated effect on its overall fortunes. Without significant uptake of ebooks in non-fiction and children’s content, it’s adult trade fiction’s responsibility to shoulder the weight of digital publishing. The knock-on effect of this is that that each quarter that goes by without a Gone Girl or Fifty Shades will be heralded in certain quarters as ‘the end’ of the ebook boom."

Amazon Stands Behind eBook Subscriptions

Amazon Stands Behind eBook Subscriptions | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
It didn’t take long after the launch of Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited ebook subscription service for the outcry to begin, but unlike other criticisms the retail book giant has weathered, this one came from its most staunch supporters: self-published authors. With the announcement that all KDP Select titles would be included in the all-you-can-eat service, authors were initially excited about the prospect of a new revenue channel from the exclusive program; it didn’t take long, though, before some of the top names in self-publishing noticed a significant drop in their KDP-based income.
