India currently has the most paid newspapers in the world, with a total of 7,871 in 2015, up from 5,767 in 2013. In terms of circulation, India is also number one, with 95 million copies sold in 2015. Canada comes second with 73 million copies sold.
Newspapers are an important part of any culture. They reflect what is going on in the world and can have a big impact on how people think. Newspaper publishers often try to influence public opinion through their papers, so they sometimes put things in them that don't really happen. For example, The Sun used to print only positive stories about Princess Diana, which created a lot of controversy when it started publishing articles about her death.
There are several factors that go into determining which country has the most newspapers. First of all, there is no single source for news around the world. Some countries like France have government-run television and radio stations that will always give space to political parties, even if they are not winning elections. These organizations need to fill their schedules with content or risk running out of things to say. This is why you see so many same old stories published over and over again - because there is nothing new to report on politics or society.
Secondly, some countries have more media outlets than others.
The World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA) produces a list of the most widely circulated newspapers. With approximately 330 million newspapers published daily in 2011, India lead the world in newspaper circulation. The Indian newspaper industry is by far the largest in the world.
According to WAN-IFRA, on average there are about 300,000 copies of daily newspapers printed worldwide. This includes papers published both within and outside Europe, Asia, and North America. Papers printed only in certain countries may not be included in this figure.
China's daily newspaper circulation was estimated at 66.5 million in 2007, making it the largest circulation in the world. American newspapers trail behind with 266 million copies sold daily, followed by the UK's 168 million and India's 95 million.
In terms of density, that number is even higher. China has the highest concentration of newspapers in the world with one paper for every 200 people. In the United States, it's one paper for every 40 people. In India, it's one paper for every 10 people.
Overall, these are very busy times for journalists as more people get their news online. Only time will tell how many newspapers will be printed in the future.
According to data from Annual Statements, the most newspapers were published in Hindi (4131), followed by English (864), Gujarati (775), Urdu (463), Bengali (445), and Marathi (445). (328). Hindi newspapers maintained to lead in circulation with 7,66,98,490 copies, followed by English with 3,41,06,816 copies. Other newspapers included in the list had 100,000 or less copies.
These are the top 10 languages according to circulation. It's based on figures provided by the Press Association. Some figures are approximate because they don't specify the language in which the newspaper is printed.
The table below shows the top 20 languages according to circulation. Figures are given for all newspapers combined, as well as for each of the 10 main language groups.
