Analyst Opinion

The eBooks market in Chile has been experiencing significant growth in recent years, driven by changing customer preferences and local special circumstances.

Customer preferences:
Customers in Chile are increasingly turning to eBooks as a convenient and cost-effective alternative to traditional printed books. The rise of digital devices, such as smartphones and e-readers, has made it easier for people to access and read eBooks on the go. Additionally, the ability to store and carry thousands of books in a single device has made eBooks a popular choice among avid readers. Furthermore, the availability of a wide range of genres and titles in the eBook format has attracted readers from different age groups and interests.

Trends in the market:
One of the key trends in the eBooks market in Chile is the growing popularity of self-published eBooks. With the rise of digital platforms and online publishing tools, aspiring authors can now easily publish and distribute their own works without the need for traditional publishing houses. This has led to a diverse and vibrant eBook market, with a wide variety of genres and niche topics available to readers. Another trend in the market is the increasing adoption of eBooks in educational institutions. Schools and universities in Chile are recognizing the benefits of digital textbooks, such as lower costs, interactive features, and the ability to update content easily. As a result, more educational institutions are incorporating eBooks into their curriculum, leading to a higher demand for digital educational materials.

Local special circumstances:
Chile has a high literacy rate and a strong reading culture, which has contributed to the growth of the eBooks market. The country has a well-established network of public libraries and bookstores, providing easy access to printed books. However, the limited availability of certain titles and the high cost of imported books have made eBooks an attractive alternative for readers in Chile. Additionally, the relatively high penetration of internet and smartphone usage in the country has facilitated the adoption of eBooks.

Underlying macroeconomic factors:
The development of the eBooks market in Chile is also influenced by underlying macroeconomic factors. The country has experienced steady economic growth in recent years, which has increased disposable income and consumer spending power. As a result, more people are able to afford digital devices and eBooks. Furthermore, the government has implemented policies to promote digital literacy and access to information, further supporting the growth of the eBooks market. In conclusion, the eBooks market in Chile is witnessing growth due to changing customer preferences, including the convenience and cost-effectiveness of eBooks, as well as the increasing adoption of digital textbooks in educational institutions. Local special circumstances, such as the high literacy rate and strong reading culture, along with underlying macroeconomic factors, such as economic growth and government support, have also contributed to the development of the market.


Data coverage:

The data encompasses B2C enterprises. Figures are based on the Books market, which covers paid publications in printed form and in the form of digital replicas (eBooks). Revenues from the consumer (of general interest), academic (for educational purposes), and professional (on specialized topics) markets are included here. All monetary figures refer to consumer spending on digital goods or subscriptions in the respective market. This spending factors in discounts, margins, and taxes.

Modeling approach / market size:

The market size is determined through a bottom-up approach. We use annual financial reports of the market-leading companies and industry associations, third-party studies and reports, survey results from our primary research (e.g., Consumer Insights), as well as performance factors (e.g., user penetration, price per product, usage) to analyze the markets. To estimate the market size for each country individually, we use relevant key market indicators and data from country-specific industry associations, such as various macroeconomic indicators, historical developments, current trends, and reported performance indicators of key market players. In particular, we consider average prices and annual purchase frequencies.


We apply a variety of forecasting techniques, depending on the behavior of the relevant market. For instance, the S-curve function and exponential trend smoothing are well suited for forecasting digital products and services due to the non-linear growth of technology adoption. The main drivers are GDP per capita, consumer spending per capita, and 4G coverage.
