Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

In 2016, revenue for Office Supply Stores in China is expected to total $5.0 billion, up 8.2% from 2015, with annualized growth of 8.2% in the five years from 2011. There are about 12,168 enterprises in this industry employing over 105,540 people with a total payroll of $261.1 million.

Industry profitability declined to 4.1% of industry revenue in 2016 due to increased competition brought about by the entry of foreign firms into the industry in recent years. Further, competition from other industries that sell stationery and office supplies, such as supermarkets (IBISWorld industry report 6512), department stores (6511), online stores (6220) and other mass merchandisers, have increased pricing pressures for this industry...

Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

The industry concentration level is low as most players are engaged in the conventional retail business mode: small outlets, few employees, manual sales services, and limited product ranges.

Additionally, the entry barriers to the industry are low as opening a conventional stationery retail store requires low initial costs and little specialized knowledge.

ACMR-IBISWorld expects industry concentration to increase, as large stationery supermarkets and chain stores are more competitive than smaller retail stores. In the rapidly growing Chinese economy, mergers and acquisitions will continue to occur as large companies expand and acquire smaller retail operators, or force them to exit the industry.
