Office Supply Stores in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Office Supply Stores in Canada

The Office Supply Stores industry has struggled to adapt to a changing digital landscape over the past five years. Consumer confidence, per capita disposable income and corporate profit, all hobbled by the recession, worked against the industry early in the five-year period. However, the industry's performance has been largely affected by declining demand for traditional office products. Although the worst appears to be over for now and the outlook is slightly better than the past five years, office supply stores will continue to battle against declining demand for core office products. Corporate profit is expected to rise, allowing businesses to invest in office technology and equipment, which offers some respite for the industry.

This industry primarily sells stationery, school supplies and office supplies. Stores may also sell a combination of new computers, office equipment, furniture and supplies. This industry does not include general merchandisers or electronic retailers.

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.
