Industry Insights

The U.S. newspaper market size was estimated at USD 27.84 billion in 2016. The market has experienced significant shrinkage in recent years, which is likely to continue over the course of the forecast period. A large drop in print advertising spending has already caused major U.S. newspaper publishing companies to cut costs by downsizing.

U.S. newspaper market

The Internet has gone one step further than television in deteriorating the advertising income of newspapers. For instance, people have moved on to broadcast media, which has proven to be a convenient medium for classified advertising, predominantly in categories such as real estate, jobs, and vehicles. Free services such as Craigslist have wiped out classified advertising departments of newspapers, some of which depended majorly on classifieds for their ad revenue.

Market consumption volumes declined at a substantial rate between 2012 and 2016, to reach a total of 44.17 million copies in 2016. The market’s volume is expected to fall to 43.36 million copies by the end of 2025.

Revenue Generation Insights

Advertising emerged as the largest revenue generating category within the U.S. newspaper market and accounted for about USD 17.49 billion in 2016. Following the presidential election in 2016, some major U.S. newspapers reported a steep jump in digital subscriptions, giving a lift to their overall circulation sums. However, the newspaper industry, as a whole, is facing ongoing challenges as online media look to decimate newspaper advertising and this will only continue over the course of the forecast period.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 60.0% of U.S. newspaper jobs vanished in the last 26 years. The statistics also states a steep decline in newspaper employment, from nearly 458,000 in 1990 to around 183,000 in March 2016, with a fall of almost 60.0%. Within the same period, employment in online broadcasting and Internet publishing rose from about 30,000 to approximately 198,000.
