What are the main segments that make up Italy's books market?
- The physical segment of the books market includes atlases, dictionaries, encyclopedias, text books, guidebooks, musical scores, maps, fiction and non-fiction. The digital segment of the books market consists of electronic books (or e-books) which can be read on computers or other electronic devices. The market is valued at retail selling price (RSP) with any currency conversions calculated using constant annual average 2015 exchange rates.
- The Italian books market had total revenues of $ 3,042.1m in 2015, representing a compound annual rate of change (CARC) of -4.7% between 2011 and 2015.
- The physical segment was the market's most lucrative in 2015, with total revenues of $2,791.2m, equivalent to 91.8% of the market's overall value.
- EU law prevents European countries from lowering the VAT on e-books; however, similar to France, Italy ruled that VAT on e-books should be cut from the standard 22% to 4% so it matches the rate imposed on printed books. This is an attempt to boost sales. However, on March 5 2015, the EU court gave a ruling in which it indicated that countries that have applied a super-reduced VAT rate cannot do this to the supply of electronic books. This ruling should prevent Italy from lowering its VAT rate to e-books. SHOW LESS READ MORE >
