Analyst Review

In accordance with the insights by the CXOs of leading companies, the global catalogue market is projected to witness prominent growth, especially in Asia-Pacific and Europe. This growth is attributed to high adoption of smartphones and rapid development of the retail & e-commerce sector due to penetration of internet.

According to the CXOs, in the digital era where computers and smartphones are monopolizing communication and life, there seems to be a comparatively less growth rate of traditional marketing than digital marketing. Moreover, studies have observed that printed catalogues and brochures might be one of the most powerful tools for a marketer; however, increasing number of SMEs as well as large enterprises are focusing on digital marketing in past few years.

Furthermore, rise in number of retailers is ceasing the catalogue production to improve businesses and reduce their impact on the environment. For instance, in May 2019, H&M, a Swedish multinational clothing company, announced to discontinue its catalogue business. The company further mentioned that the catalogues do not align with shopping behaviors from today's consumers. In past few years, printed catalogues have lost much of their appeal among marketers.

For instance, the Atlantic, an American magazine and multi-platform publisher, recently reported that the number of printed catalogues mailed in America peaked at 19 billion in 2007, and by 2018 had fallen to about 11.5 billion. This clearly indicated the declining growth rate of printed or physical catalogues. However, the global e-commerce sector is evolving, and increasing number of people are buying online. Hence, rise in number of companies inclining toward digital catalogues enables buyers to find specific product information in seconds. Such catalogues further help to create an immersive, information-rich experience for online shoppers and make them more likely to purchase the product.

On the other hand, during the COVID-19 pandemic, people stayed home to be safe, and therefore they had more discretionary income to spend on shopping online or via digital catalogue. In 2020, the catalogue market witnessed massive changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which completely altered the way consumers work, live, and shop for new products.

For instance, due to the proliferation of online advertising, companies were embracing digital catalogues as they engaged more consumers, made buying easier, and aligned with consumers’ environmental values. The CXOs further added that e-commerce companies are sending artificial intelligence (AI)-generated digital catalogues to stay relevant in their email marketing efforts. In addition, some of the e-commerce industry players are investing in direct-to-consumer channel or direct mail applications, as the digital space becomes increasingly crowded, while mailboxes are not full and have a more long-lasting effect.
