Book Stores in the US - Industry Market Research Report
NEW YORK, Oct. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
Page-turner: E-readers will benefit some stores, but high competition will hurt revenue
Book Stores in the US
Hitting the books
Changing consumer behavior and increasing competition from alternative retailers like mass merchandisers will hurt revenue over the next five years. Operators will benefit from increasing demand for new technologies like e-readers, but competitive pressure from online retailers will be strong. Furthermore, physical book sales will continue to fall, adversely affecting players.
Companies in this industry retail a broad range of book and newspaper merchandise including trade books, textbooks, magazines, paperbacks and religious books. These goods are purchased from domestic (and in some cases international) manufacturers and wholesalers. Operators then retail these goods, through their stores, to the general public. This industry excludes retailers that operate primarily as used merchandise stores or electronic shopping and mail-order houses.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
