Taking both audiobooks and podcasting together, the Bookwire ‘All About Audio’ program was a multifaceted tour of the issues with a final message to publishers: Streaming is inevitable.
Starting with a statistical overview on audio in world publishing, Bookwire’s June 24 online conference examines facets of growth in the sector.
While some skepticism has greeted Penguin Random House’s discount-and-coupon offers on print copies, others see a useful exercise in D2C sales.
The Spanish and Latin American markets are expected to have 14,000 Spanish-language audiobooks available this year, and, with ebooks, continued to see growth in 2019.
In Dosdoce’s new study, American publishers’ interest in producing Spanish-language audiobooks is seen as rising rapidly.
As ebook sales continue to grow in Spanish-language markets, the new report from the Dosdoce and Bookwire.es shows digital subscription services are also gaining consumer traction.
The predictions made by publishers responding to Dosdoce’s new survey see the number of Spanish-language audiobook titles surpassing 10,000 this year, narration dialects starting to favor Latin American markets.
Citing a 110-percent jump in sales in Latin America and 41 percent growth in Spain, a new report sees digital as a key to the Spanish markets’ turnaround.
‘There is good news’ from the publishing sector in Spain, says The Markets’ visionary speaker Javier Celaya of Dosdoce.com. And it’s ‘radically transforming the cultural sector.’
‘New technology always stirs up fears of the unknown,’ says Javier Celaya, author of the publishing report, New Business Models in the Digital Age.
