In recent years, science fiction ebooks have become increasingly popular. According to a report by the Association of American Publishers, ebook sales in the science fiction/fantasy category grew by 2.1% in 2020, with revenues totaling $335.9 million. This indicates that readers are continuing to show interest in science fiction ebooks, even as the publishing industry undergoes significant changes.
Additionally, science fiction ebooks have been particularly popular among younger readers. According to a survey by the Pew Research Center, 50% of millennials (those born between 1981 and 1996) have read a book in the science fiction/fantasy genre in the past year, compared to 34% of those aged 50 and older. This suggests that the popularity of science fiction ebooks is likely to continue to grow in the coming years as younger readers continue to discover the genre.
