Not in the cards: Revenue growth will remain flat as consumers turn to digital alternatives



Abstract

Greeting Cards & Other Publishing in the US

Over the past five years, the proliferation of paperless substitutes has dampened revenue for the Greeting Cards and Other Publishing industry. Many industry products, such as greeting cards, day planners and calendars, have been rendered increasingly obsolete, as more consumers prefer digital calendars via their mobile phones. Moreover, as many downstream markets have consolidated, such as brick-and-mortar book store retailers, the industry has grappled with fewer retailers including industry products on their retail shelves. In response, many publishing companies have consolidated. In the five years to 2021, industry revenue is forecast to decline. Many publishing companies will consolidate, enabling these industry operators to secure superior contracts with downstream markets. For example, some publishing companies will expand their portfolio of electronic greeting cards and cater to nontraditional downstream markets, such as clothing retailers.

This industry comprises publishers that primarily publish greeting cards in print or electronic form. Some companies also publish products such as postcards, calendars, coloring books, yearbooks and more. This industry excludes newspaper, magazine, book, directory, map, atlas, database and music publishers.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
