Summary

Table of Contents

In this report Apex Insight reviews the UK parcels market encompassing the business-to-business, business-to-consumer and consumer / small business consigned segments.
- We quantify the market size, historical growth rates, segmentation patterns and levels of industry profitability while reviewing key factors behind these figures.
- Our market size estimate is derived from our bottom-up model of the revenues of all of the operators in the market with adjustments made to take into account a range of factors. This model has been regularly updated and refined since it was first developed in 2004.

We also carry out an in-depth analysis of the relevant drivers of industry growth – in particular the macroeconomic environment and home shopping – setting out historical trends and available forecasts.
Apex Insight's forecast for industry growth by segment is based on this analysis of historical trends and our understanding of growth drivers.
- For the 2014 edition of the report we have reviewed our market sizing, segmentation and forecasting methodology and made a series of changes which we believe significantly improve the reliability and accuracy of our market data.
