MPA extends western European coverage


14 January 2005 – London (UK): Following on from the publication of updated studies on the office products markets in France, Germany and the UK at the end of 2004, MPA International has now launched four more western European market studies.

These include updated studies on the Spanish, Benelux and Nordic OP markets (the latter including Finland for the first time) as well as MPA’s first survey on the Austrian market.

All reports cover nine broad product sectors, giving market values in 2003 and 2004, as well as forecasts to 2009. Like other MPA surveys, the reports also contain extensive chapters on market drivers such as demographics and IT penetration, as well as a chapter on distribution channels, key distributors and their shares.

MPA’s managing director Martin Wilde said: "It is MPA’s objective to offer a comprehensive database of the western European office products market by the end of 2005."

The four new surveys are due to be published by the end of May 2005 – but as usual a substantial discount is made for those who describe before publication date.
