Simba Information Releases Study of Ebook Publishing Trends

Simba Information unveiled “Scholarly & Professional E-Book Publishing 2020-2024,” a report that “examines the scholarly and professional market including e-books in law, business, scientific and technical, medical, and social science and humanities. It found that scholarly and professional e-books sales increased slightly in 2019, but will decline in 2020 anywhere from 2% to 9% depending on the segment examined, with STM publishing being the most stable and law and business publishing seeing the worst declines.” The report also offers projections of the scholarly and professional markets through 2024.

“The consumer book market is separate and distinct from scholarly and professional books. Some of the post lockdown trends in trade publishing are very positive for e-books, with people spending more time at home reading and e-books being easier to acquire. But those trends don’t necessarily flow through to the professional market where the uncertainty at the university level and in boardrooms will impact budgets,” says Dan Strempel, senior editor/analyst of the Business and Professional Group at Simba Information.
