Office Supply Stores in Canada
The Office Supply Stores industry in Canada sells a variety office-related goods to consumers and businesses through physical retail stores. The industry has performed poorly over the five years to 2019 and has struggled due to rising competition and changing consumer preferences, with the increasing digitalization of various business processes diminishing demand for many traditional products. The industry, which only includes sales of office supplies made at brick-and-mortar stores and excludes online sales, has been further hampered by intense competition from websites and discount department stores that sell many of the same products at low prices. Although the industry's period of steep decline appears to be over and the outlook is better over the next five years, declining demand for industry products will lead to continued decline in revenue over the next five years. However, this decline will be at a slower pace.
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.
