Paid circulation volume of national newspapers in France 2018

Ranking of national daily newspapers in paid outreach in France in 2018, by daily circulation volume *

by Statista Research Department, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Paid circulation volume of national newspapers in France 2018  In 2018, the newspaper Le Figaro ranked as first among national daily newspapers, with more than 309,000 copies released. Le Monde and L’Équipe came in second and third position, both with less than 300 thousand copies daily.  
Daily newspaper consumption in France

   According to the Statista Global Consumer Survey from 2019, more than a third of the respondents declared having read the free daily newspaper 20 Minutes in the past two weeks, while paid newspapers as Le Figaro and Le Monde were mentioned by 15 and 20 percent of French. In the same survey, French also stated purchasing daily newspapers as single issues rather than as part of a subscription. Moreover, regarding the amount of printed copies of the daily press, it seems that the printed press slightly declined since around the second decade of the century.  In 2015, Médiamétrie forecasted the daily time spent reading newspaper to decrease from 21 minutes in 2010 to about 19 minutes per capita in France by 2018.  

Online news consumption in France

  In a context of decline of the printed press and spreading internet use, news media appear to diversify their reach also online: among the online newspapers in France, the most visited news websites on which French spent money were lemonde.fr, leparisien.fr and lefigaro.fr as of early 2019. In addition to this, almost 80 percent French surveyed in 2017 stated using news applications on mobile devices at least once a day. Another point is the growing use of social media platforms to get news: 69 percent of French aged between 18 and 29 years got news from social media daily in a poll from 2017.
