Newspaper publishing

2013 revenue: $33.37 billion

2018 revenue: $27.68 billion

Newspapers continue to face competition from digital media. And advertisers have fewer incentives to advertise in print publications because readers prefer real time information. "Despite declining overall readership, newspapers tend to attract a more affluent demographic, making advertisers reluctant to desert the industry altogether."

The risk level for this industry is 'high' and revenue is expected to fall at an average annual rate of 3.67% over the next five years.
