Missed delivery: The industry will suffer as online services continue replacing traditional mail

Postal Service in the US

The US Postal Service (USPS), the sole operator in the Postal Service industry, has historically suffered revenue losses. Over the past five years, internet services such as online banking and e-mail have increasingly replaced traditional mail. E-commerce growth mitigated some of the negative effects of online services, since goods purchased online require package delivery services. Still, overall mail volume is expected to decline steadily during the period. Profit has also plummeted due to the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act (PAEA) of 2006. While the industry is projected to continue operating at a loss over the five years to 2022 due to PAEA payments and growing external competition, demand for package delivery services is projected to increase as the economic activity improves and online transactions proliferate. USPS is also expected to reduce costs through wage cuts and reduced hours.

This industry includes establishments that operate the national postal service and perform one or more postal services such as sorting, routing and delivery. Establishments that operate on a contract basis (except the bulk transportation of mail) are included in this industry.

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.
