The Global Courier and Delivery Services industry experienced relatively uneven growth over the past five years. Industry operators provide air, surface and express courier delivery services of parcels, documents and packages to residential and business customers. In the years following the global economic slowdown, the industry experienced a period of rapid growth from its recessionary lows, as the global economy improved and developed economies stabilized.
However, relatively slow economic growth in developed markets, especially in Europe, has significantly dampened industry growth in recent years, as advanced economies account for a majority of industry revenue.
Operators in this industry primarily provide air, surface or combined express courier delivery services of parcels, documents and packages for business customers. Industry operators generally provide services between metropolitan areas or urban centers and form a network that includes local pick-up and delivery to serve customers’ needs. This industry excludes services provided by national postal services and commercial airlines.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
