DUBLIN, April 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "E-book Market in the US 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The report forecasts the e-book market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 13.98% during the period 2016-2020.
An electronic book, or e-book, is a digital publication of a book that can be read on computers or handheld electronic devices like tablets. These books have a lower price range compared to their printed counterparts, and this is one of the major reasons for their growing popularity in the US. They are compatible with most electronic display devices and provide users with a variety of reading options on any of their display devices.
The market is divided into the following segments based on categories:
The emerging trend of self-publishing is gaining popularity in the e-book market in the US owing to its advantages. Authors can approach vendors to get their books published and sold through online channels, instead of completely depending on traditional publishing houses. Such self-published titles tend to be priced much lower than mainstream titles. Therefore, the number of self-published books in the e-book market in the US is expected to increase because of the low prices these titles offer compared to mainstream titles.
According to the report, the increased penetration of portable devices like smartphones, tablets, and e-readers in the US is one of the key drivers of the e-book market in the country. With increased Internet penetration and rapid technological advances, smartphones and tablets have become essential to mobile phone users in the country.
Further, the report states that content piracy is a significant risk factor for e-book publishers. The increased number of sites that host and supply pirated books is anticipated to adversely affect the growth of the e-book market in the US during the forecast period.
