Traditional publishing industry is experiencing a new surge of digitization after completing the evolution from "type and fire" to "laser and electronics." Building from the basis of the traditional publishing industry, and employing the strength of the advantage of modern high-tech information technology, digital publishing has entered a stage of rapid development by virtue of the vigorous support of the government as well as active promotion by enterprises within the industry.
Since digital publishing has been widely recognized as the direction of future development in the publishing industry, the question is no longer, "To do or not to do?" but rather, "How do we do this?" The Chinese government also attaches great importance to the digital publishing industry. The Chinese digital publishing industry had a registered output of RMB53 billion at the end of 2008, a year-on-year increase of 46.42%. China Telecom, which boasted 513.5 million subscribers as of the end of October 2009, already offers e-readers in China and sells e-books on its Mobile Market online store. Presently, the number of individual e-reading terminals in China exceeds 0.18 billion, and the population of phone netizens has reached 50 million.
