Industry Structure & Development:
The Indian Stationery and Notebook Industry
The Indian stationery industry is built on the manufacture and trade of a broad range of paper products, writing instruments, computer and office stationery, and related items other than greeting cards, calendars or gift wrap. The industry as a whole, and the market for notebooks and exercise books in particular, is closely tied to the evolving and growing national economy and population. As the overall economic environment in India has improved, demand by businesses and increasingly well educated consumers has driven growth in the stationery industry.
According to the AC Nielsen ORG MARG Report, the Indian stationery and notebook market is approximately Rs. 80,000 million as of fiscal 2005-06, of which Rs.51,000 million is attributable to the sale of notebooks and exercise books. Total exports of paper based notebooks from India was 3% of domestic sales or Rs.1,550 million in Fy06.
The notebook industry can be broadly segmented into four categories of end users: students, schools and education authorities, offices and business customers and personal use. Out of these segments, the student population has the largest share or 80% of total consumption. Offices and business customers make up 10% of total demand while schools and education authorities are important customers with 7% of total consumption. Personal use of notebook products contributes the balance 3% of total demand.
The most important drivers of consumption in the Indian notebook and stationery industry are:
The strength of the economy;
The growth of consumerism and increased urbanisation;
Large population with attractive age profile;
increased rates of literacy;
Increased rates of education; and
Increased Government outlay for the education sector.
A strong economy contributes to consumption of stationery products in all sectors - office, education and personal consumers, as do increased consumerism and urbanisation. In particular, increased consumerism and urbanisation drive demand for higher quality and premium products. Increased economic growth is resulting in an increase in the middle class, which in turn is fuelling the consumer boom and demand for notebook and stationery products.
