Chart of the week: The world's biggest publishing markets

The USA and China were the top publishing markets measured by revenue for the third consecutive year. These two publishing powers are followed by the three major European economies Germany, the UK and France.

According to the International Publishers Association, America recorded a healthy bounce back from 2014 to 2015, with an increase of €2bn to €24.9 (US$27.8bn). The US market has therefore been able to reverse its fortunes, as it had shrunk from 2013 to 2014. In China however, the industry recorded a slight decline, from €10.6bn to €10.5bn.
