The print advertising distribution market consists of revenue generated from providing services by entities (organizations, sole traders and partnerships) that are involved in the distribution and delivery of advertisement materials such as sample products, circulars, brochures, and coupons among others through door-to-door promotion, placing flyers, and handing the samples in retail stores. Only goods and services traded between entities or sold to end consumers are included.
The global print advertising distribution market is expected to decline from $15.4 billion in 2019 to $14.4 billion in 2020 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -6.5%. The decline is mainly due to the COVID-19 outbreak that has led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of industries and other commercial activities resulting in operational challenges. The entire supply chain has been disrupted, impacting the market negatively. The market is then expected to reach $14.25 billion in 2023 at a CAGR of -0.35%. Internet access, digital advertising, and social media are playing as huge contributors to the decline in print advertising distribution.
