Paper trails: As digital media prevails, paper wholesalers will struggle to remain relevant



Abstract

Paper Wholesaling in the US

Rising competition from digital mediums and declining demand from traditional downstream markets have created challenges for the Paper Wholesaling industry, causing revenue to increase very slowly. Improved industry sales, coupled with staid commodity prices, boosted wholesaler profitability over the five years to 2016. With improving demand, wholesalers could partially pass along price increases from upstream paper mills onto consumers, thus improving profit margins during the period. Regardless, improved profit and overall demand did not halt the number of companies exiting the industry, as smaller operators failed to account for much of this improvement. Over the next five years, the industry will continue to experience challenging conditions, but will ultimately receive a small boost from newer paper products. In the five years to 2021, industry revenue is forecast to grow at a faster rate than in the previous period.

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.

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.
