Sales are increasing exponentially in this emerging market. Most of the IPG-distributed publishers who make use of this channel are located in Spain or South America and publish only in Spanish, but other IPG publishers who publish primarily in English have found that Spanish-language editions of their books can sell well.
IPG prints a separate Spanish Language catalog and is one of the largest distributors of Spanish Language titles in North America. The market for these titles is very robust, and IPG works closely with the Spanish Language specialists through various sales channels.
