    Industry Report - Industry SWOT Analysis Chapter

    The Stationery Paper Manufacturing industry is in the decline phase of its economic life cycle. Industry value added, which measures the industry's contribution to the economy, is forecast to decline at an annualised 4.5% over the 10 years through 2021-22. In contrast, Australia's GDP is expected to grow by an annualised 2.5% over the same period. This result indicates that the industry's contribution to the overall economy is declining. Industry demand for paper stationery is shrinking due to increased competition from substitutes such as plastics and online platforms, while imports from low-cost manufacturers abroad are capturing a greater share of the domestic market. Additionally, industry operators have been forced to cut prices to compete with overseas producers.
