The new technologies caused an enormous challenge to publishing industry. Some people see that the emerged of new technologies accelerate the demise of publishing industry. Some other people believe that the industry is reaching its end, and will be vanished from existence soon. However, we at The Key Publishing House believe the contrary. We view that publishing industry will not be obscure from human lives or entirely vanished from existence. No doubt, the new technologies cause great knotty challenges to the industry. Yet, the industry will accommodate itself to the change of external technological phenomena. As history shows, whatever happens, the publishing industry will adapt to the new environment and evolve. So, regardless of current technological hits, publishing industry will survive and thrive.
