Publishing market

While the print publishing industry is decreasing, South Korea’s publishing market has a major driving force, the country’s large education market. In 2019, the transaction value of online book sales accounted for around 1.9 billion South Korean won, out of a total transaction value of 135.3 billion South Korean won.

Creative contents in South Korea

While the publishing industry is the largest sector overall within the content industry when it comes to sales revenue, the gaming industry is also significant when it comes to export value and import value. All in all, the content industry has been an important asset for South Korea, as Hallyu (the Korean wave) is changing the image of South Korea worldwide. It is therefore no surprise that the South Korean government is strongly subsidizing the cultural content sector.
