About This Report


It has been a difficult period for newsagents and stationery retailers over the past five years. Industry players have had to operate in a tough trading environment and confront increasing competition from external players, declining newspaper circulation numbers and the growth of internet shopping. As a result, industry revenue is forecast to decline at a compound annual rate of 2.6% over the five years through 2015-16 to reach £3.4 billion. Industry trading conditions during this period have also been affected by annual fluctuations in real household disposable income, poor consumer sentiment and the overall rate at which UK consumers have adopted IT and telecommunications.

Operators in this industry primarily sell newspapers, magazines, greetings cards and stationery, including office supplies. Products are sourced from a variety of local and international suppliers and sold chiefly to consumers and businesses.

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.
