Publishers Association logo



 The Publishers Association is an acknowledged authoritative source of statistics on the UK publishers' sales of physical and digital books and learned journals as well as income from rights and co-editions.  

Each year the PA produces a comprehensive statistics yearbook that incorporates data from our various statistics schemes as well as editorials by leading figures in the industry to give their insight into what is happening in the industry, along with the reports from our monthly and quarterly statistic schemes. PA members have free access to the yearbook and the monthly and quarterly statistics reports, while non-members are able to purchase the yearbook from the online bookshop. 

The PA also commissions regular and ad hoc research such as annual review of learning resources in primary and secondary schools in UK, as well as compiles useful statistical handouts, some of which are exclusive to PA members, while other are available for public consumption. 

The Global Publishing Information area of our website includes statistics on overseas book markets. Members are reminded to login in order to see the links to the latest yearbook, PASM quarterly report and latest monthly digital report.
