The U.K.’s ebook industry faces a digital cliff as the number of e-books available to consumers has fallen to a record low, with Amazon struggling to keep up with demand and e-book publishers struggling to adapt to the ever-changing landscape of digital publishing.
In the past year alone, e-readers and tablets have been steadily replaced by digital devices such as smartwatches and wearables, and Amazon has also been struggling to retain market share in a market dominated by Amazon and Apple.
The decline of ebooks has been a huge blow to the UK’s traditional publishing industry, which has long relied on traditional publishing to provide a steady stream of revenue and income for the government and the public sector.
The sector is currently losing a total of £1.5 billion ($2.1 billion) in revenue annually, according to the British Library.
For years, the government has struggled to keep pace with rising demand from consumers and businesses, and the last government-backed report predicted that the number would reach over 50 million by 2020.
But this is now coming to an end.
According to the latest government statistics, ebook sales fell by a staggering 55 percent in 2016.
This has caused a massive loss of business for the UK e-publishing industry.
As a result, the number on sale in the UK is down from about 60 million in 2012 to about 33 million in 2020.
The UK is one of the top e-commerce markets in the world, with nearly a third of the country’s e-content.
The UK has a reputation for being a great place to shop, and a recent report found that online shopping habits have been shifting away from brick-and-mortar stores.
The government has invested heavily in new technologies such as virtual assistants to help with book purchases, but there is a real possibility that these will soon be obsolete.
While Amazon is one major player in the industry, it has struggled for years to compete in the market for the right to offer e-reader devices.
Amazon’s Kindle e-ink reader is the only device available in the United Kingdom to provide the type of digital book experience that Apple’s iBooks provides, but it is struggling to sell the e-sales of its rival Apple.
Amazon is also facing the challenge of finding a way to get consumers to adopt its technology, and it has been working to find ways to make its devices as accessible as possible to consumers.
But even if Amazon’s devices can become as ubiquitous as those of Apple, Amazon will still need to attract new consumers to its e-reading platform.
In the short term, the UK may have to look to third-party vendors such as Amazon’s rival Apple, which could see an increased number of consumers turning to its devices.
In the long term, there is another factor that is weighing down the UK economy: the impact of Brexit.
Many of the businesses that rely on British products and services are struggling to survive during the transition to a new economy, and Brexit will have a huge impact on the UK.
Britain’s economy is set to suffer significantly in the coming years, with some industries facing a decline in the number that will be working in the sector.
According to the International Federation of Independent Business (IFIB), the UK will have lost more than 50,000 jobs in the next five years.
Despite the decline in sales, the British government still expects the industry to be worth £8.3 billion ($10.7 billion) by 2020, and more than half of this figure is expected to come from the sector’s ebooks, with more than 20 percent of this coming from the UK and Ireland.
