Today's Paper Industry = Survival of the Fittest
March 16, 2018
(Industry Intelligence Inc.)
Many professionals today see paper as a dying industry. Industry Intelligence sees it as an evolving one.
While it’s an exciting time to be part of this industry, there’s also lots of uncertainty regarding its place in the digital landscape. There’s no such thing anymore as a standard business model, and there’s no clear path toward guaranteed success. Maintaining the status quo would be a futile effort, as would rehashing old ideas.
In short: nobody in the paper industry is safe.
To merely operate in the paper space using capacity, pricing, and procurement information is to fail. In today’s cutthroat paper space, success requires knowledge on emerging players and their plans for advancing the industry; insight on the latest trends and technologies; and a creative, thoughtful and progressive approach to doing business. After all, the trajectory of printing and publishing is now dictated by transformation and innovation.
We’ve seen just how fast industries can transform and just how widespread that transformation can be. Take the automotive industry, for example. It wasn’t too long ago that electric vehicles were considered a small, niche market. Today, however, Tesla Inc. is ranked the most valuable carmaker in the United States. And with the advent of autonomous driving technologies, the trucking industry is poised to transform radically.
