Print and digital combined are increasing audiences for newspapers globally, but digital revenues are not keeping pace, posing a risk for newspaper businesses and the societies they serve, the annual World Press Trends survey released on June 9th 2014 by the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA) revealed. Print circulation increased +2 per cent globally in 2013 from a year earlier but declined by -2 per cent over five years. Around 2.5 billion people around the world read newspapers in print and 800 million on digital platforms. Print circulation continues to rise in countries with a growing middle class and relatively low broadband penetration, but long-term structural declines in print circulation continue in mature markets as audiences shift their focus from print to digital. Circulation rose +1.45 per cent in Asia in 2013 from a year earlier and +2.56 per cent in Latin America; it fell -5.29 per cent in North America, -9.94 per cent in Australia and Oceania, -5.20 percent in Europe and -1 per cent in the Middle East and Africa.
