Audiobook sales trends

Now. Did you know.

International audiobook audiences are growing year-on-year at 40% in the UK, 30% in the US, where sales in 2016 were $1.7 billion and $2.5 billion in 2017?

Annual audiobook sales growth is approaching 20% in Australia.

And from the last annual Small Press Network conference. They officially welcomed self-publishers as members and predicted that audio books are expected to be the next growth format.
