The Publishers Association (PA) is the leading trade organisation serving book, journal, audio and electronic publishers in the UK. Join The Publishers Association today and start benefiting.



The Publishers Association is an acknowledged authoritative source of statistics on the book publishing industry. Each year we produce a comprehensive statistics yearbook, which incorporates data from our various statistics schemes on UK publishers’ sales as well as sector reviews by leading figures in the industry to give an insight into what is happening in the industry.

In addition we commission research as well as provide statistical handouts. Some handouts are exclusive to PA members and some are available for public consumption.
