Print’s passing predicted

An Australian-based futurist, Ross Dawson, has boldly predicted the demise of newsprint across the globe, starting with the end of US newspapers around 2017 and then gradually lessening in significance in 52 countries by the year 2040.  The graphic shows it all quite neatly.

So what will drive this downfall?  Dawson predicts newsprint will be replaced by mobile devices, tablets computers and the advance in technology of lightweight digital papers.  We’ve already seen that e-editions of newspapers are rising quickly, but quick enough to see the end of newspapers as we know them in the UK and US by the end of the decade?
