The paper industry loses first, and the book industry will become a "pond fish"
according to the annual reports of 25 listed companies in the paper industry in the first quarter, the industry suffered losses for the first time in the past four years. In the first quarter of 2010, the net profit of 25 listed companies in the paper industry totaled 633million yuan, compared with -15million yuan at present. With the rising cost of raw materials and labor, the industry is not optimistic about whether the paper industry can turn around in the last three quarters of this year. As we all know, the book industry is an important downstream industry of the paper industry. The losses of the paper industry and the fluctuation of paper prices will eventually be transmitted to the book industry in a period of time, which will continue to increase the cost of paper books. This situation will put book publishers and sellers in a dilemma. If the price of books does not rise, the profit margin of the book publishing and sales industry is bound to decline. If the price rises, the sales volume of books will not decline. According to statistics, the sales volume of ground books in China showed a negative growth of -1.05% for the first time last year. Under such a situation, the original price of books is maintained and the sales volume is still sluggish, let alone the price increase
we might as well consider this issue from another angle. Although book publishing and retailers can not control the price rise and fall of raw materials such as paper, they can still expand their own profit channels through other ways to resist the impact of upstream industry losses as far as possible and minimize the losses. 3. Tidiness: the leading integrated design in the industry. In fact, the current form of books is not only limited to paper books with high raw material costs, publishing audio-visual products, and e-books with lower costs. It is also one of the transformation paths of book publishers. The integration of some publishing institutions has also made the business scope of publishers no longer limited to book publishing, improved the business ability of periodicals and magazines subordinate to publishing institutions, developed the digital publishing industry, opened physical bookstores, shut down or bookstores in the opposite order, It will bring the publishers a new verified Solvay tecnoflon pl855 fluororubber (FKM) and give the fasteners a profit growth point of better chemical resistance and high temperature resistance
as for book sellers who are in the most downstream of the book industry, they should not only focus on book sales. In fact, building bookstores into public cultural places to attract customers, innovating their own service models, and obtaining economic benefits through other derivative stores, so as to feed back book sales, is becoming a breakthrough for many bookstores. Chengpin bookstore from Baodao has an annual sales of more than 2billion yuan, but only one third of it comes from book retail, and the rest comes from Stationery sales, department stores and restaurants concurrently operated by the bookstore
in other words, in the future of the increasing popularity of online reading, the continuous decline of paper books is inevitable. In the subway, there are a large number of people who hold tablet computers or various intelligent e-books. People have reading needs after all. They understand advanced technologies and look for technical resources to break through technical bottlenecks and professional fields, but their reading methods are changing. Since the performance decline of the upstream industry is the general trend, why don't book publishers and sellers take this opportunity to accelerate their own transformation and seize the new market
it is hoped that the first loss in the upstream industry will not become the last straw to crush many physical bookstores that are still struggling to support, but an important opportunity to promote the transformation of book publishers and sellers
