Newspapers & Magazines

The newspaper and magazine industry has had until now many difficult years, with publishers seeing their revenues steadily decrease. Many historical actors have exited, and consolidation is generally occurring at national level, with not many global international players beyond the magazine segment. As assets in the newspapers or magazines industries are losing value, many of the recent stake acquisitions are serving political or business influence. These scenarios are observed in most countries, but they are particularly tangible in Central and Eastern Europe and in Latin America. However, besides this trend, new business models favouring digital and the emergence of cross-media groups, such as radio, TV, online, telecom or pay TV for instance, have also started to emerging. While global advertising revenues have been sharply declining, they remain reliant on print advertising, rather than digital revenues. The same trend is observed on the breakdown of revenues coming from circulation. The main issue faced by publishers lies in this contradiction between the focus set on digital transformation and the continued dependence from print revenues. Graphics and visualization tools enable to grasp the market dynamics from first sight. Full data history and forecasts are summarized in downloadable tables, PDF or PPT.

The newspapers and magazines industry in Germany

Although slightly decreasing each year, the German publishing industry remains very important with revenues reaching more than €8.1 billion in 2019. The market’s key players are Funke Medien, Axel Springer, Gruner + Jahr, Burda and Bauer Media. These groups also gained a strong international presence over the years and they often belong to larger diversified groups. For example, Bauer Media is a leader in the radio industry in Europe. Gruner + Jahr is part of the same group as the European television leader RTL.
