Book Publishing

Industry Outlook

As long as people continue to read, there will be a future in book publishing. Trends in book publishing employment through 2028 are projected to vary by career segment, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. For example, writers and authors are expected to experience little or no growth and employment of editors will decline slightly. Future opportunities for writers and editors are expected to be greatest in online publications, and those with multimedia and Web experience will be in demand. Desktop publishers will see a dramatic decline in employment, dropping by 16 percent through 2028, as more publishers continue to publish their materials electronically.
