2014-04-21 16:39:02 - UK Express Parcels: Market Insight Report - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
This new report looks at each of the three main segments of the parcels market: business-to-business, business-to-consumer and consumer/small business-consigned parcels. These segments were traditionally seen as separate markets, served by different providers.However, there has been convergence as home shopping growth has made consumers increasingly attractive to serve, drawing business carriers such as UPS, City Link and UK Mail to increase their focus on the area where they believe they can serve it profitably.At the same time, consumer-focused carriers like Yodel have invested in systems and sought business customers. New services have been developed by both carriers and third parties, such as internet brokers and parcel shop networks, to give consumers and small businesses access to a much wider range
of services. In this report we review the UK parcels market encompassing the business-to-business, business-to-consumer and consumer / small business consigned segments.We quantify the market size, historical growth rates, segmentation patterns and levels of industry profitability while reviewing key factors behind these figures.Our market size estimate is derived from our bottom-up model of the revenues of all of the operators in the market with adjustments made to take into account a range of factors. This model has been regularly updated and refined since it was first developed in 2004 .We also carry out an in-depth analysis of the relevant drivers of industry growth - in particular the macroeconomic environment and home shopping - setting out historical trends and available forecasts.Our forecast for industry growth by segment is based on this analysis of historical trends and our understanding of growth drivers.This report is intended for parcels carriers themselves, users of their services, partners, investors, banks, analysts, consultants and other parties with interests in the sectorIt is based on:- Financial analysis of the accounts of companies in the industry
- Interviews with senior-level contacts in the market
- In-depth analysis of the macroeconomic environment and relevant market drivers
- Our own experience of advising both companies and investors in the express parcels industryInformation from these sources has been synthesised and presented clearly and concisely with extensive use of charts and tables to illuminate points and support conclusions
