Ten percent of UK respondents to a survey conducted in 2017, reported accessing eBooks or audiobooks through illegal channels.

ePublishing global market outlook



Statista’s Digital Market Outlook forecasts an increase in the average revenue per user (ARPU) derived from the ePublishing, ePapers and eMagazines sectors. When it comes to eBooks, however, the Digital Market Outlook indicates a slight ARPU reduction, from 12.74 U.S. dollars per user in 2019, to 12.13 U.S. dollars per person by 2023.

While the ARPU may be lower, Statista expects the eBook user base to increase significantly, from 950.5 million in 2019, to 1.11 billion users in 2023.
