On Tuesday last, Adobe released data to show just how significant digital has become as a strategy for magazine publishers. Their report confirms recent industry statistics that show the continually increasing growth in digital magazine circulation.
Since 2011, Adobe report that the number of digital magazines downloaded each week has increased nearly sevenfold from 300,000 per week in the last quarter of 2011 to around 2 million per week at present.
In the last year alone, the total number of magazine created using Adobe and then downloaded has more than doubled to more than 150 million. Engagement with digital publications has also increased.
