Office Stationery Wholesaling in Canada
The Office Stationery Wholesaling industry in Canada has struggled to remain competitive as demand for traditional office products has fallen out of favour. Demand for business forms, direct mailing supplies and print advertising has been slow to improve over the five years to 2018 due to declining purchases of paper products among individuals, retailers and corporate clients. Beset with low profit margins and heightened competition, many industry operators experienced company closures and mergers. Large national operators were facing financial pressures and closing distribution centres. Industry consolidation will most likely continue for the foreseeable future and demand for traditional industry products is forecast to decline. Along with the industry combating paperless and printer-free solutions, industry operators will also have to maintain sales relationships with major clients to sustain revenue growth.
Office stationery wholesalers distribute a range of paper stationery products and other office supplies to retailers, other industry wholesalers and directly to customers. 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.
