    Magazines ABC Q1 2021: Little good news for magazines

    The Audit Bureau of Circulation (ABC) Q1 2021 shows a littering of publications resigning or being discontinued, with not much good news. The Consumer Magazines Woman's sectors were particularly hard hit. The Custom and Free Magazines also did not fare well, with the only real good news coming from the B2B Magazines category
    Magazines ABC Q1 2021: Little good news for magazines

    Consumer magazines

    Of the 19 sectors in this category, 11 showed no positive increase on the previous quarter. The only publication in the celebrity category, People, resigned. Many categories had resignations and discontinuations. The Woman’s General sector, which had some increases over the previous quarter in Q4 2020, and Women’s Special sectors have been particularly hard hit.

    The good news came from the Arts, Culture and Heritage sector (Jewish Life: 33% increase on previous quarter), Business and News (Financial Mail: 11.6% increase on the previous quarter), Family Interest (LIG: 54.8% increase on previous quarter). There were also some increases in the family interest, farming, home, motoring, sport and hobby, travel, tourism and hospitality sectors.
