Summary

Amazon has stopped selling Kindle ebook readers in China, and will stop sell­ing ebooks there in June 2023. The Kindle app will be removed from Chinese app stores in 2024, and readers who previously purchased Kindle ebooks will no longer be able to access their libraries. Customers who bought a Kindle reader this year may receive refunds. Amazon is reportedly “ad­justing the strategic focus of its operations,” and will continue other businesses in China: “Amazon China’s long-term commitment to customers will not change. We have established a broad business base in China and will continue to innovate and in­vest.” According to the Wall Street Journal, Kindle “dominates the market for e-reading devices in China,” with 65% percent of the market, though sales have declined recently.

This report and more like it in the July 2022 issue of Locus.
