Deloitte: Print is alive and well - at least for books

In its annual Technology, Media and Telecommunications Predictions report, Deloitte Australia predicts that in 2015 print will represent more than 80 percent of all book sales in dollars worldwide. 

The report states that eBook sales volumes have hit a plateau, or seen decelerating growth, in major markets including the US, UK and Canada.  The continued popularity of print comes mainly from younger readers - 92 percent of 18-29 year-old book readers in the US read in print in 2013, above the average for the population as a whole. Three-quarters of millennials read a print book, but only 37 percent read an eBook.
