PA Statistics Yearbook


The PA statistics yearbook  is  the definitive source for statistics on the UK book publishing industry and more recently the learned journal market.  It has expanded over the years to include results of our various statistics schemes. It now includes: 

  • Sector reviews by leading figures in the book trade;      
  • Five-year sales and trend analysis of publishers' home and export physical book sales by sector and region (2011-2015);

  • Three-year sales and trend analysis of publishers' home and export digital book sales by sector (2013-2015);

  • Estimates of the UK book market market size;

  • four-year sales and trend analysis of publishers' income from learned journals (2012-2015);

  • Results of the annual survey on rights and co-editions;

  • Results of the annual production survey.
