Art & Office Supply Manufacturing in the US
Companies in the Art and Office Supply Manufacturing industry manufacture a range of art and office supplies, including pens, pencils, staplers and marking devices and have experienced enormous challenges over the five years to 2018. For example, text messages and e-mail are extremely popular communication tools that do not require pens, pencils or other writing and drawing supplies, greatly hampering industry growth. Moreover, businesses throughout the country have moved toward conducting operations online and are demanding fewer industry products. Low-cost imports are also putting pressure on domestic manufacturers. As a result, industry revenue is expected to fall overall during the period. As operators contend with falling demand and high competition, downsizing and consolidation are expected to continue throughout the next five years to 2023.
Operators in this industry purchase ink, wood, plastics and other materials to manufacture a range of art and office supplies. Industry products include pens, pencils, art goods, staplers, marking devices and carbon paper. Customers include businesses, consumers, wholesalers and office-supply retailers.
