Increasing digitization of books and educational information is contributing to the growth of digital publishing market. Conversion of the information into digital format contributed to the change in learning methods like the shift from traditional printed textbooks to digital modes such as e-readers, smartphones, and tablets.

For instance, due to COVID 19 lockdown in mid-2020 across the globe, the sale of physical books has gone down as most of the publishing house and bookstores were closed and readers spent most of the time in reading e-books. In India, sale of physical books went down by 80% and sale of e-books had almost doubled during the lockdown.

Earlier pre-COVID 19, e-books or online newspaper and journals were popular among Generation Z or Millennials but during Covid 19 even Gen X and baby boomers too got aligned to this. Therefore, this trend is expected to be continued post COVID 19 also, thus driving the market for digital publishing during the period.

The threat from open educational resources and alternative textbook sources is one of the biggest challenges faced by digital publishing market. The market growth may be hindered by the availability and accessibility of either free or affordable resources on the web.
