Sales of writing instruments registered flat growth in 2014, continuing the trend evidenced during the previous year. Despite the fact that writing instruments suffered from the higher use of electronic devices to write in place of paper, manufacturers responded with renewed promotional efforts to expose products to consumers and then generate new demand. Companies and retailers present looked for ways to create attention for products such as premium pens or colouring with new products and enhanced marketing efforts aimed to trigger consumer curiosity.

Competitive Landscape

Edding Lega International BV accounts for 32% of markers and highlighters value; a category which the manufacturer leads and continues to innovate with products for alternative applications. In March 2014, the company introduced a new marker specially designed for porcelain surfaces, suitable for decorative purposes. The Edding 4200 for porcelain can be applied on fine and broad trace and assures a long-lasting effect. With this product, the manufacturer looks to cater for the rising consumer group in arts and crafts hobbies.

The biggest challenge for growth will remain the increased usage among consumers of electronics, including mobile phones, tablets and personal computers.
