European Book Market Statistics 2021-2022

For the first time, FEP presented its yearly book market statistics at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2022. The presentation provided detailed consolidated data regarding the European book market in 2021, covering a series of data points (turnover, titles, formats, etc.), an overview of the changes in turnover in many countries in 2021 compared to 2020 and 2019 and a glimpse of the trends in individual markets in the first months of 2022.

The data come mainly from the questionnaires that FEP collects from its members every year and are subject to estimates and approximations. It is essential to bear in mind that most national data are hardly comparable between them and that rather than the specific figures, it is the trends and the narratives they reveal that matter.

The PDF presentation shown in Frankfurt is available below and on the Publications section.

The recording of the presentation is available on the Frankfurt Book Fair YouTube channel.
