Industry revenue of »publishing of books, periodicals« in Czechia 2011-2023

The Czech Republic book, periodical and other publishing market, which experienced a bit of a downturn during 2011-2016, is now expected to recover and register moderate increase till 2023. Total revenues in the sector are expected to touch $1.2 billion in 2023, up from $1 billion in 2018. On the other hand, the retail sale of books in specialised stores in the country is expected to increase from $225 million in 2018 to $248 million in 2023.

Books and periodicals losing ground

As is the trend in most countries globally, software publishing is cannibalizing the traditional mediums in the Czech Republic as well, with its share expected to increase from just 14% in 2011 to around 56% in 2023. One of the main reasons for this is the overall loss of interest in books in the country with a large number of people across age groups reporting that they could be happy without books. Therefore, it is no surprise that the household consumption expenditure on newspapers, books and stationery declined steadily during the period 2008-2016.
