[Infographic] eBooks: Publishing Industry Statistics

Skyrocketing sales of Kindles, iPads, smartphones, and new eReader-based devices are driving record-breaking eBook sales. This infographic, brought to you by The Content Wrangler, explores the impact the digital publishing revolution is having on both book publishing revenues and the ways publishers operate.

The information used to create this infographic is from “Uncovering Ebooks’ Real Impact”, a report based on data collected in the semi-annual Aptara Survey of Publishing Professionals. Representing more than 1,300 book publishers from the Consumer, Professional, Education, and Corporate markets, the report documents eBook trends, strategies, and best practices that have emerged in the publishing industry since Aptara’s first survey in 2009. If you’re interested, you can request a copy of the full report. It’s chocked full of useful data and thoughtful analysis.
