  • Copyright ©2012 The Nielsen Company. Confidential and proprietary. KEY FINDINGS From our international markets, including the US, Italy and the UK • Print book markets worldwide continue to see decline • E-book sales data is not yet broadly available – consumer data helps to bridge this gap • US e-reader adoption is skewed towards an older, female demographic • Italian e-reader adoption is stronger among a younger, male demographic • In the UK e-books have rapidly taken a substantial proportion of the Fiction market, delivering volume growth – but this is not matched by revenue growth • Whilst e-books become increasingly significant for the Fiction market, the Non-Fiction and Children’s sectors have not kept up • E-book pricing is not only lower then physical books - it has been driven down as penetration has increased 17
  • Copyright ©2012 The Nielsen Company. Confidential and proprietary. KEY CHALLENGES In the developing digital space • How can publishers maintain (and grow) revenue as the migration to digital brings a new pressure to deliver low prices? • How can publishers develop compelling digital content for the Non-Fiction and Children’s markets? 18
