Office Stationery Manufacturing in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Office Stationery Manufacturing in the US

The Office Stationery Manufacturing industry has been hit hard over the five years to 2018. Operators in this industry manufacture stationery, envelopes and office supplies, such as printer paper, notebooks and folders. Despite increases in business activity and growth in the number of businesses, industry revenue has contracted during the five-year period. The rising use of electronic communication and storage has reduced demand for traditional paper stationery products such as envelopes, letters and file folders. E-mail and other technologies continue to reduce domestic demand for stationery products. Most industry operators have responded by eliminating unprofitable product lines and focusing on core product offerings, with several moving their operations offshore to take advantage of lower operating costs and growing markets. The increasing use of electronic products over traditional office supplies will continue to stifle the growth that comes from the increasing number of businesses and expanding corporate profit. As companies attempt to compete in a saturated and declining market, downsizing, consolidation and off-shoring are expected to continue for domestic operators over the coming years.

Operators in this industry process paper and paperboard. Companies produce a variety of stationery products used for writing, printing, filing, mailing and similar applications. Industry products are sold directly to stationery wholesalers, retailers and large enterprises. End users include businesses, students, home offices and households.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
