Workplace360 sister organisation OPI is once again teaming up with Martin Wilde Associates to deliver unique new research into the future direction of the business supplies industry.
The Business & Workplace Supplies Industry To 2028 will tackle the key forces impacting the sector over the next few years, such as: ongoing digitalisation, hybrid and agile working, sustainability and macroeconomic factors. The report aims to provide some answers, first by reviewing key demographic and other market driver data for four major end-user markets (USA, France, Germany and the UK), including:
- Economic data
- Population and labour force statistics
- Company base statistics
- Home working statistics
- Office equipment usage
- Internet and cloud usage
- E-commerce penetration
- Sustainability indicators
Around 20 CEOs/senior sales executives in key industry companies in these regions will then provide commentary on the current and future impact of these and other trends on end-user demand for each of the following business supplies categories through to 2028:
- Paper and paper-based stationery
- Other traditional stationery
- Printer cartridges & printers
- Office furniture
- Office machines
- Cleaning supplies
- Catering supplies
The report will also highlight any opportunities identified for new products and services, and provide guidance from industry practitioners on how to implement successful diversification.
Research for the study will commence in October 2023, with the report being published by the end of December 2023. It is available for pre-order for only £750 if ordered before 31 October 2023, and for £950 thereafter.
