With the rise of the Internet, the publishing industry is slowly dying out. Eventually, everything will be online, simply because of the lower costs that come with online publishing.
At the same time, people still aren’t ready to give up on their paper. According to Statista, a website dedicated to collecting surveys and information for industries, 76% of American still prefer to read from paper, and also spend significantly more time with paper publications than they do online publications.
Though it’s going to be hard for the paper publishers to remain forever, it’s clear that they definitely still have a market that wants to have the paper copies. They just have to find a way to make their businesses more profitable.
