Recordbreaking year for UK Publishing up 7% to £4.8bn
The Publishers Association's numbers published today show that 2016 was a landmark year for the publishing sector, with book and magazine revenues at £4.8 billion, the highest ever. This 7% year-on-year revenue gain is the highest rate of revenue expansion in a ten-year period, during which 2007 was digitally recorded for the first time.
The sector's expansion was driven by domestic and international performance, with exports increasing by 6% to 2.6 billion and now accounting for 54% of overall turnover. Stephen Lotinga, directeur général de l'Association des éditeurs, sagte : "UK Publishing is a global market-leading publisher and these numbers show that the sector thrives on the dedication and imagination of its outstanding publishers and employees.
"We have all at some point in our life benefited from the work of a great writer, a high standard text book or the exchange of scientific books, and this is only possible through the continuing popularity of the publishing world.
