The latest research report from OPI (in association with Martin Wilde Associates), titled The Business & Workplace Supplies Industry To 2028, has now been published.
The world around us is changing fast – and so is the business and workplace supplies industry. The Business & Workplace Supplies Industry To 2028 combines key demographic trends, economic forecasts and insights from industry leaders in a unique and timely study that is essential reading for any strategic planner.
The first half of this 72-page planning resource book comprises 26 tables giving essential data and commentary on demographic and other potential market driver data for four major end-user markets (the US, France, Germany and the UK):
- Economic trends (GDP and inflation forecasts to 2028)

- Home-working trends
- Office space trends (office space supply and occupancy forecasts to 2028)
- Office equipment trends
- Internet and cloud usage trends
- E-commerce trends
- Sustainability trends
The second half of the report contains seven chapters, each dedicated to investigating how these drivers are driving a major product category – currently and in the future – based on commentary from approximately 20 senior sales executives in key industry companies in the above markets:
- Paper and paper-based stationery
- Other traditional stationery
- Ink, toner and printers
- Office furniture
- Office machines
- Cleaning supplies
- Catering supplies
Each chapter also identifies any other drivers affecting these product categories. Also included are forecast tables predicting the growth – or decline – in demand for the categories in each country through to 2028 as well as the subcategories which are expected to outperform and underperform against overall category demand during that period.
The report also highlights opportunities for potential new products and services in the different categories as well as providing advice from industry practitioners on how to implement successful diversification in each sector.
