World Medical Publishing Industry Discussed by Simba Information in In-demand Study Now Available at

16 Sep 2013 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – The recession has had an adverse impact on the revenue streams of medical publishers, resulting in a 2.4% decline in global sales in the market in 2012. Medical books saw the strongest decline, with sales dropping by 2.5% to USD 2.96 billion in the same year.

In response to the market’s challenges, leading medical publishers are striving to develop and acquire information-based products that are usually accessed via mobile devices and can be integrated into the workflow within the healthcare system. Online services continue to show the fastest growth (about 4% as of 2012) in medical publishing business. While the developed world and the English language still remain important to the sector, much of the growth rises from emerging markets such as the Middle East and Southeastern Asia, where money is being poured into upgrading their healthcare systems. Reed Elsevier, Truven Health Analytics, Wolters Kluwer, Springer Science+Business Media, Igaku-Shoin, John Wily & Sons, American Medical Association, Thieme, Epocrates, among others, are the world’s leading medical publishing companies.
