on Feb 18, 2022

Nielsen BookData and The Federation of Indian Publishers (FIP) are delighted to announce they have partnered to produce the second edition of the Nielsen India Book Market Report. 

New Delhi, 17th February 2022—Nielsen BookData has partnered with FIP to produce the long awaited second edition of the Nielsen India Book Market Report. The first edition was published in 2015 and the publishing industry has changed enormously since then, not least withstanding a global pandemic. Nielsen BookData and FIP recognize the need for an updated report to provide the industry with an understanding of the current dynamics and the changes that have occurred over the last few years. 

The partnership brings together two critical players, and their collaboration promises to deliver a report that provides a business-critical analysis of the market to inform and support the stakeholders of the Indian publishing industry. 

Vikrant Mathur, Executive Director of Nielsen BookData, India said: “It is my great pleasure to announce our partnership with FIP and I’m delighted to be working with them on the second edition of this report. FIP is the leading federation for Indian publishers and our association with them will bring a new synergy to the report which will benefit the whole industry.” He went on to say: “The first India Book Market Report was released over 6 years ago but is still considered the “bible” for the Indian publishing industry. We are confident that the second report will not disappoint and will continue to provide a unique picture of the industry.” 

Pranav Gupta, Joint Secretary of the Federation of Indian Publishers [FIP], who has been appointed as the Project Leader for this initiative from FIP said “It will be the first of its kind report that will study the contribution of the Indian literary publishing industry in India’s economy. It will help everyone in the publishing ecosystem to get deep insights into the Indian industry and align their business plan accordingly. This will significantly boost innovation. I want to Thank the entire leadership of FIP for trusting me with this huge responsibility.“ 

The report is expected to be available towards the end of the third quarter, 2022.
