World Professional Publishing Industry Reviewed in Updated Research Report Published at MarketPublishers.com

12 Mar 2012 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Forecasts say the global market for professional publishing products and services, led by the legal, science/technical and medical (STM) segments, will grow 3% through 2012, reaching USD 41.4 billion. Print and electronic books were the leading delivery method, closely followed by online services and abstracting/indexing.

Though print books still dominate the landscape for professional publishing, representing the largest chunk of revenue from the top ten leading publishers, double-digit growth is expected for e-books. Mobile and internet applications have also experienced significant growth recently, as publishers have stepped up production efforts.
