The overall book market including print and digital fell by 4% in 2013, according to Nielsen Book.

The data company’s UK Books & Consumers Annual Review found that the overall book market, combining “e” and “p”, declined by 4% in volume and value in 2013 after fewer customers bought physical books. E-book purchases rose to one in four in comparison to one in five of all books bought last year against 2012.

However, e-books were bought at a much lower price to physical books, accounting for only 14% of books spend overall.

The Annual Review provides an overview of consumer book purchasing in the UK in 2013 compared to 2012, using data based on 80‐90,000 book purchases made by a nationally representative sample of 37‐38,000 book buyers per year.
