Digital textbooks will soon be the norm

Sales of digital textbooks currently account for only a fraction of the U.S. college textbook market. According to the latest report by the social learning platform Xplana, the tipping point for e-textbooks has been reached, and they predict in the next five years digital textbook sales will surpass 25% of sales for the higher education and career education markets.

Last year Xplana predicted that one in five college textbooks would be digital by the year 2014, but due to the rate at which colleges are embracing digital textbooks, Xplana now projects that sales will grow by 80 to 100% over the next four years.
