Book, Magazine & Newspaper Wholesaling in the US
The Book, Magazine and Newspaper Wholesaling industry has remained in a state of rapid decline over the five years to 2019. Demand for print media has declined in line with increased consumption of digital news and entertainment, fueled by the continued proliferation of mobile devices. Amid this challenging environment, the industry has consolidated over the past five years to maintain negotiating power with ever-larger upstream and downstream customers. As these customers have grown larger, many have also sought to streamline their supply chains by using only one wholesaler, limiting the ability of smaller companies to compete. Over the five years to 2024, the industry will continue to be battered by an ongoing consumer shift to digital media. Substitute products, such as online content and e-books, a shift away from single-copy sales of consumer magazines toward subscription sales and ongoing disintermediation of the supply chain will contribute to declining revenue.

Companies in this industry primarily distribute and wholesale books, magazines, newspapers and periodicals. Map, pamphlet and antique book distributors and wholesalers are also included in this industry, while online and other paper product distributors or wholesalers are excluded.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
