Our Market
Denmark

The Danish daily newspaper circulation market comprises national and regional (and local) titles, accounting for c.55 per cent and c.45 per cent, respectively, of daily copies sold.  Total daily circulation was 0.8 million copies, down 4 per cent from the comparable period in 2012, with regional titles falling on average 1 per cent and national titles by 6 per cent.  The national market includes three quality titles, two tabloid papers and a daily financial newspaper.  There are 25 regional and local titles, with a wide range of circulation volume.  The total daily circulation revenue was estimated to be €498 million in 2013 (2012: €506 million).  The total print advertising revenue, including daily newspaper titles and free weekly titles, represented 28 per cent of total advertising and was estimated to be €466 million (2012: €509 million), split between daily titles of €212 million and free newspapers of €254 million.

There are two major operators in the Danish newspaper market: Berlingske Media and JP/Politikens Hus (JPPol), with 25 per cent and 29 per cent, respectively, of the total paid newspaper circulation (in the case of Berlingske Media after the disposals made during 2013). Ownership of other newspaper operations is fragmented, with no other publisher having more than 10 per cent of the market.
