The newspaper publishing industry in Europe is in transition phase and it’s confronted with serious challenges. The media landscape has not remained unaltered, as clustering and vertical integration shape the media landscape to a more and more complex network where it is difficult to delineate separate markets. This paper analyses what is the current situation of the newspaper publishing sector in the twelve major European markets and the aim of this article is to first explore the differences the development of profitability of newspaper publishing and to find out to what extent this can be explained by relevant background variables. The analysed countries are Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Sweden and United Kingdom. According to extent to which profitability can be linked to the competitive pressure experienced, our results can also shed some light on factors affecting the intensity of competition.
