The Paper Wholesaling industry will continue to experience declines in revenue over the next five years, though increased business and consumer spending on advertising, publications and printed materials will marginally bolster industry sales. Still, the increasing trend of wholesale bypass and competition from digital media will hamper revenue and profit growth.
Paper wholesalers purchase bulk and writing paper from manufacturers, generally in rolls for further processing, and distribute them to other manufacturing industries, publishers and commercial printers. Wholesalers provide a service for paper manufacturers and users of paper products and charge a mark-up on all goods distributed.
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.
