2010 State of the Computer Book Market, Post 3 – The Publishers – O’Reilly Radar

2010 State of the Computer Book Market, Post 3 – The Publishers – O’Reilly Radar:

There really is some terrific data here provided by O’Reilly Radar, but what baffles me is why Lightning Source is lumped in with the top ‘publishers’. LSI is a printer, though the comparison is at least helpful to see the extent the printer has become in the publishing industry.

“In this third installment, (see Post 1 and Post 2; Post 4 & 5 to come soon), we will look at how publishers fared in 2010, as compared to 2009. The chart below shows our dashboard view of the large publishers’ results for 2010. The most notable piece of information is that Wiley continues to hold the leading spot as the largest publisher (with 32% market share of units sold), while Pearson and O’Reilly both lost 1%, which is picked up by Cengage and McGraw Hill. (We’ll look at revenue share later in the analysis.)”
