U.S. Private Mail Centers and Copy Shops - Business Services

Navi Mumbai, India (PressExposure) June 10, 2014 -- Bharat Book Bureau presents the new report, on "U.S. Private Mail Centers & Copy Shops - Business Services". The report covers: the nature of the business, definition/services of copy shops and private mail & packing centers, major issues and trends affecting the business, key demand indicators.

This new Marketdata report is a comprehensive analysis of a fragmented $8.9 billion industry that is vital to the support of small and home-based businesses and start-ups: business services, including private mailbox centers, copy shops and all other services. The business was hurt by the Great Recession and hundreds of private mail centers either closed or were acquired by FedEx or UPS and were re-branded. In-store copy shops at Office Depot and Staples have also hurt independents. However, since these retail stores serve local customers and have diversified and expanded their services, they are well positioned to take advantage of the coming wave of new start-ups and wave of entrepreneurialism and self-employment (selling via Amazon, Ebay, Etsy) that's spreading across the U.S.

The report covers: the nature of the business, definition/services of copy shops and private mail & packing centers, major issues and trends affecting the business, key demand indicators (small business formation, self-employment, the economy), market size/growth ($ receipts: 1997-2018 Forecast), extensive national and state operating ratios for each industry segment (no. of establishments, receipts by: $ size, single/multi-unit firms, state, market share of top 50 firms, payroll, profit margins - industry snapshots for 1997, 2002, 2007, 2012), analysis of franchising, major demand indicators such as self-employment trends and the growth of MLM distributors, and more.

Individual Company Profiles provided for: Private Mail Centers -- The UPS Store (acquired Mail Boxes ETC.), FedEx Office (acquired Kinkos copy shops), Pak Mail, Postal Annex (Annex Brands), PostNet Neighborhood Centers, Aim Mail Centers (Annex Brands), Safe Ship, and Copy/Print Shops - Alphagraphics, InXpress, Kwik Copy Business Centers, Minuteman Press, PIP Printing, Sir Speedy, ARC Document Solutions, Office Depot (In-store Copy Centers), and Staples (In-store Copy Centers).
