The Document Preparation Services industry has struggled over the past five years. The weak economy and increased competition are expected to result in revenue declining at a compound annual rate of 2.2% over the five years through 2015-16 to reach £983.3 million. In 2015-16, IBISWorld expects industry revenue to increase by 0.2%. The industry's fortunes are largely tied to two economic indicators: business confidence and business capital expenditure. Unfortunately for the industry, both indicators performed poorly following the UK economy's contraction. This caused UK businesses to scale back spending dramatically, leading to a reduction in demand for the industry's services.
Companies in this industry provide a variety of copying, document preparation and specialised office support activities. These include photocopying, document preparation and secretarial support services.
