Report shows most consumer magazines increased subscriptions in 2009

Most magazines increased paid-for subscriptions in 2009, according to a new report by CDS Global (a company which among other things manages subscriptions).

They say that overall there was a 0.7 per cent year-on-year increase in subscriptions in 2009 with 53 per cent of all publications increasing subscriptions levels.

According to CDS (who aren’t writing from an exactly unbiased viewpoint): “The future looks exceedingly bright for subscriptions levels, with growth continuing into 2010 and beyond.”

It underlines the point that the latest consumer magazine ABC figures appear to show a sector which has survived the recession in much better shape than the likes of broadcasting and national/regional press.
