Globalization, together with digital, is reshaping the publishing industry worldwide, by literally reinventing how knowledge and reading are brought to consumers on the largest possible scale. The old ways of the book industry are facing disruption on all levels.
The transformation is defined and driven not just by the industry’s traditional players, notably publishers. Distributors, retailers, technology and communication giants have stepped in, and by doing so assume new roles, or more radically, aim at integrating all the available roles of the book industry at once in their respective portfolio. Actors which grew in one national market reach out to global audiences. Emerging economies foster their own initiatives to compete with global giants old or new, while reading and books get embedded, via new devices and distribution channels, along with all other digital content.
At the CEO panel 2011, “New Horizons in Global Publishing”, speakers were Li Chunchi (China Education), John Makinson (Penguin/Pearson), Arnaud Nourry (Hachette), and Oleg Novikov (EKSMO).
