Advancements in Technology Driving the U.S. Document Outsourcing Market

(Weymouth, MA) July 10, 2008 . . . According to a new report from InfoTrends entitled U.S. Document Outsourcing Market Forecast: 2007-2012, the document outsourcing market will continue to increase from approximately $36.2 billion in 2007 to $46.8 billion in 2012. We believe that this rate is a reflection of continued (albeit slowing) economic growth, a shift in the service provider market (from offering commodity print services to more advanced offerings), and the relative maturity of the U.S. outsourcing market compared to markets abroad (particularly Western Europe).

One factor that is driving the document outsourcing market is the ability of companies to gain access to new document output technologies at a reduced capital cost via outsourcing. Many client organizations have sought access to the latest document output technology, yet have found the up-front investment to be a significant barrier. As they seek to reduce their balance sheet exposure to long-term capital investments that may not be core to their business operations, client enterprises have found that partnerships with document outsourcing service providers can often provide direct access to the latest digital printing and workflow technologies, without the associated balance sheet encumbrances and risk. Access to this technology is imperative to their ability to take advantage of new marketing vehicles such as TransPromo advertising and the use of variable data, which can greatly increase the effectiveness of marketing efforts.

This highly informative report details other growth drivers in this market and provides a forecast for 2007 through 2012. The document includes actual and forecasted revenues across four primary segments: On-Site Contracted Services, Transaction Document Services, Off-Site Contracted Services, and Document Process Outsourcing (DPO). In addition to forecast numbers, this document details the megatrends that are present in this market.
