Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 03, 2014
Graphic display services have a buyer power score of 3.4 out of 5. This score reflects a buyer's moderate ability to negotiate lower pricing due to the large number of suppliers, the product's widespread availability and the price-competitive nature of the graphic display solution market. However, buyers in need of highly customized and intricate graphic display solutions “will likely have lower buying power than those who require a more standardized, ready-made solution,” says IBISWorld research analyst Jordan Weinstein. IBISWorld estimates that there are 690 vendors, which provides buyers with a substantial number of supplier options. Recent demand growth and price fluctuations in key inputs, however, have marginally reduced buyer negotiating power.
In the three years to 2014, the average price of graphic display solutions has grown slightly due to a rise in demand, specifically from the business and consumer sectors. Both sectors serve as major demand segments for the graphic display servicer market, and the recovering economy has propelled both sectors to grow at a steady pace during the three years to 2014. Growth in these sectors has increased demand for graphic display services. Suppliers are also anticipated to experience price increases for key inputs, such as plastic materials and wood products, over the three years to 2017. As a result, says Weinstein, “The selling price for graphic display solutions will increase slightly as suppliers pass on a portion of their increased input costs to buyers.” Current major suppliers include Aaron Brothers Inc., Dick Blick Art Materials, Hobby Lobby Stores, Jo-Ann Stores and Michael’s Stores.
Fortunately for buyers, the rise in production costs and demand for graphic display services over the next three years will not lead to significant price increases during the period. Due to the high level of competition in the market, suppliers face strong pricing pressure; suppliers that drastically raise prices will lose business to suppliers that offer the same products and services at a lower cost. Furthermore, low market share concentration and high competition among suppliers are both factors that improve buyer power. The large number of suppliers and low switching costs strengthens competition. These conditions are favorable for buyers and are anticipated to remain unchanged over the next three years.
