Nielsen Book Research - Measuring and analysing sales and consumer behaviour around the world


The complex world of book publishing and selling has been transformed by Nielsen BookScan in ten countries.

The Nielsen BookScan service collects the retail sales information from point of sale systems in more than 35,500 bookshops around the world, BookScan is able to present sales information in a variety of ways, including by the market size and share of different book categories, and by individual publishers, specific imprints, authors and price points. In most countries, statistics are also available by actual sales price and consumer discount levels. And because every single title making a sale is reported, the information covers specialised categories and small imprints as well as data relating to the major players.

Our Nielsen BookScan data is accessed via the Internet, and uses powerful web-based data delivery and analysis systems to provide reliable, sales-related information for booksellers, publishers, libraries and the media, around the world, around the clock.
