Office Stationery Wholesaling in Canada
The Office Stationery Wholesaling industry in Canada has turned the page on many traditional products that have fallen out of favour with the majority of consumers. Demand for office stationery, notepads and cards has been slow to improve over the five years to 2017 due to declining purchases of paper products. Office stationery wholesalers have also struggled to contend with rising competition from electronic mediums and office supply superstores. Over the five years to 2022, total industry revenue is projected to grow slowly. The industry is expected to continue consolidating.
Office stationery wholesalers distribute a range of paper stationery products and other office supplies to retailers, other industry wholesalers, directly to customers and to foreign buyers. Industry products include envelopes, computer paper, notebooks, business forms, photo albums, folders, pens, pencils, toner cartridges, ink ribbons, cellophane tape and other miscellaneous paper office supplies. Sales of office equipment and furniture are not included in this industry.
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.
