A new wave of online book publishing companies is creating a new era of book publishing.
For some, it’s a welcome opportunity to compete with Amazon and Apple, but for others, it could be a challenge to survive in a world where publishers have to compete directly with Amazon, Google, and other competitors.
The rise of digital publishing has been a boon to the publishing industry in recent years, as more and more publishers have turned to the technology to generate revenue and keep their books in print.
But digital publishing isn’t without its risks, with many publishers reporting losses.
A new industry report from the BookScan Institute shows that the number of ebook publishing companies has exploded over the past decade, with the number growing by nearly 30 percent over that time period.
Publishers that have been growing quickly include Ingram, BookScan, and BookScan Unlimited.
They are all growing at a rate that’s about five times faster than the overall book market.
And there are many reasons why that’s happening.
“I think we’re at a time when the industry is at a point where you’re going to see a lot of consolidation,” said Brian M. Haney, executive director of the Bookscan Institute.
“I think the consolidation that we see is not sustainable.
I think that we’re seeing more and longer book contracts.
I don’t think you’re seeing any more books being released in any one year.”
But if publishers like Ingram and Bookscan are able to stay afloat, they will be able to continue to be profitable, and those profits will help pay for the publishing infrastructure that has been built to support digital publishing.
And that’s something many publishers are eager to do.
“This will be a new generation of publishers.
I’m not sure that they have as much experience as the older generation, but they’re going be able, and that’s what we want,” said BookScan president Chris Hales.
“We want to see them succeed and grow.”
Hanes says the growing number of companies has a lot to do with the growth of ebooks, and how they’ve become an increasingly popular medium for publishing.
“It’s very easy to sell books online,” Hanes said.
“It’s easier to find books that are in a format that you can read on the Kindle or the iPad or the iPhone.
It’s really easy to find a book online.
That’s been a huge factor.”
But with the digital revolution comes the question of what to do about publishers that are struggling financially.
Hanes says publishers are often looking to cut back on the number and quality of their titles, and they have been doing just that for years.
“Publishers, as a whole, have really fallen off,” he said.
“And I think we have a really big problem with publishers, especially the smaller publishers that have the most to lose.
And I think a lot more publishers are going to be looking for that kind of help, because they don’t have a lot on their plate right now.”
Publishers are also looking to reduce their staff.
There are now more than 2,000 publishers working in book publishing, according to BookScan.
That number is projected to grow to 4,000 by 2021, which is about 3 percent of the book market, according a report by the BookScans Institute.
But Hanes doesn’t think it will be easy for publishers to keep their jobs.
“They’re going through some tough times.
I mean, they’re a very resilient company,” he explained.
“And I don.t think they’ll be able anymore to afford that kind (of layoffs).”
In some ways, the growth is a blessing for the book publishing industry, Hanes added.””
Because we are in uncharted waters, and I think people are going through that period of time.”
In some ways, the growth is a blessing for the book publishing industry, Hanes added.
“The digital revolution has really changed the way that people buy books,” Hays said.
And it has changed the ways in which publishers sell books.
And now, the question is, how do we get back to the way books were bought?”
Hanes is optimistic about the future of book writing, and he says he expects to see that continue for some time.
“Book publishing is going to grow in the coming years,” he told ABC News.
“This is a great time to be in the business.
We have this opportunity to continue this.”
