Global writing and marking instruments market - Customer Landscape To help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies, the report outlines – Key purchase criteria Segment Overview Technavio has segmented the market based on the product (pens, markers and highlighters, pencils, coloring and writing instruments, and writing accessories), and distribution channels (offline and online). The pens segment will grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. The rapid penetration of technologies and digitization in educational institutions and workplaces has resulted in a decline in the use of paper-based stationery products over the last few years. This has limited the adoption of writing equipment such as ballpoint pens, rollerball pens, marker pens, and gel pens among students and professionals. Geography Overview By geography, the global writing and marking instruments market is segmented into APAC, Europe, North America, Middle East and Africa, and South America. The report provides actionable insights and estimates the contribution of all regions to the growth of the global writing and marking instruments market. APAC will account for 46% of the market's growth during the forecast period. The surge in student enrolment in educational institutions will facilitate the writing and marking instruments market growth in APAC over the forecast period. This market research report entails detailed information on the competitive intelligence, marketing gaps, and regional opportunities in store for vendors, which will assist in creating efficient business plans. Global writing and marking instruments market –Market Dynamics Leading Drivers - One of the key factors driving growth in the writing and marking instruments market is the growing emphasis on product personalization. With rapid advances in printing technologies and design, several vendors offer highly personalized writing and marking instruments such as personalized pens, pencils, coloring pens, and highlighters to attract consumers. Vendors offer writing instruments with customized print designs based on the branding requirements of consumers. Vendors offer product personalization to incorporate an emotional dimension to their product at virtually no additional cost to the consumer. A high level of product customization offered by vendors enables them to distinguish their product offerings in the market. The growing emphasis on product personalization is expected to continue to boost the growth of the global content writing market size and the overall market. Key Trends - The rising popularity of writing instruments as fashion stationery is another factor supporting the writing and marking instruments market share growth. With advances in printing technology, several vendors are increasingly focusing on product design, aesthetics, and functional aspects of writing instruments. Innovations in product design and features of writing and marking instruments make them premium-priced products. Many vendors offer luxury pens that have innovative and customizable features and are priced higher than regular pens. This is expected to drive the market during the forecast period. Owing to the rising popularity of fashionable writing instruments, manufacturers are entering into partnerships with popular fashion designers for sophisticated product designs. The growing popularity of writing instruments as fashion stationery is expected to support the growth of the global writing and marking instruments market. Major challenges - The rising threat of digitization will be a major challenge for the writing and marking instruments market during the forecast period. The adoption of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets is increasing significantly worldwide. Factors such as the rapid penetration of digital devices and the rising popularity of personalized digital learning programs have popularized digital content over the last few years. The aforementioned factors have affected the sales of conventional paper-based notebooks and writing and marking instruments over the last few years. The use of writing instruments such as pens, pencils, and highlighters has considerably reduced in offices and higher educational institutions because of digitization. Several offices and higher educational institutions have shifted to digital documents for a range of applications, including the development of training content and documentation.
