Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Book, Magazine and Periodical Printing industry has a long history in China. Despite growing competition from the rapid development of online publishing, China's printing sector has maintained steady growth in the past five years. It is not likely that digital publications will completely displace printed materials in China.

In the five years to 2017, industry revenue is expected to increase 5.1% to total $20.4 billion, including a 5% increase in 2017. There are an estimated 1,473 enterprises operating in the industry that employ about 216,538 people. Industry exports account for 8.8% of total industry revenue, totaling an estimated $1.8 billion for 2017. Meanwhile, imports account for 2.9% of domestic demand at $550.3 million.
