Market Overview:

The global office shredder market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period 2018-2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to factors such as, rising awareness about data security and privacy, increasing number of cyber-attacks, and growing demand for document shredding services. Based on type, the global office shredder market is segmented into strip-cut shredder, cross-cut shredder and micro-cut shredder. Strip cutters are most commonly used in offices as they are low cost and can handle large volumes of paper quickly. Cross cutters are more expensive than strip cutters but offer better security as they produce smaller pieces that are difficult to reassemble. Micro cutters offer the best security but are also more expensive than other types of office shredders and hence find limited adoption in offices. Based on application, the global office shredded market is segmented into online applications and offline applications. Online applications include cloud storage providers (Dropbox Inc., Google Drive etc.), email service providers (Gmail by Google Inc., Outlook by Microsoft Corporation) social media platforms (Facebook Inc., Twitter Inc.)and others such as file sharing websites(Mega Ltd.). Offline applications include personal computers or laptops, USB drives etc.

Global Office Shredder Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

The definition of an office shredder is a device that destroys confidential documents by cutting them into small pieces. The importance of an office shredder is to protect the privacy of the documents shredded and to prevent identity theft.

Strip-cut Shredder:

Strip-cut shredders are used for cutting paper into narrow strips, which can be easily recycled. The machine is usually used in offices and homes for disposing of confidential documents, financial statements, marketing plans and other sensitive information.

The strip-cut shredder market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing awareness about waste disposal management among consumers across the globe.

Cross-cut Shredder:

The cross-cut shredder is a kind of paper shredder which cuts papers by the horizontal or vertical position. The cross-cut type of cutters makes an effortless and complete job as it can cut both vertically and horizontally at the same time. It is mostly used for office purposes where large volumes of confidential documents are shredded at regular intervals, usually once in every month.

Application Insights:

The office shredder market is segmented by application into online and offline. The online application segment dominated the market in 2017, accounting for over 60% of the overall revenue share. This is attributed to growing awareness about data safety among organizations and a surge in demand for paperless offices across the globe.

Offline applications include corporate offices, banks, hospitals, colleges/universities and other institutions. Offline offices are usually associated with strict privacy policies that do not allow visitors to carry away confidential information easily; this factor has led to high adoption of office shredders in such places. Furthermore, offline applications are expected to witness significant growth owing to increasing pressure on organizations from various quarters regarding data safety issues-related to prevention of cyberattacks and leakage of confidential information through lost or stolen devices or media etc., increase security awareness among employees etc., which will further boost product demand over the forecast period (2017 - 2030).

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global office shredder market in 2017. This is attributed to the presence of a large number of prominent players operating in this region, including Fellowes Inc.; Lanier Advanced Cushion Technology, Inc.; and Greenfield Cross-cut Shredder LLC. The increasing volume of paper documents across various industries is also one of the major factors contributing to regional growth. For instance, according to statistics provided by GfK Custom Research Institute Ltd., total business volumes printed at work have increased by nearly 50% from 2007 to 2015 for U.S workers and by more than 70% for Canadian workers during the same period.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness substantial growth over the forecast period owing to rising disposable income levels among consumers as well as growing penetration of online retailing in countries such as China and India that are witnessing strong economic growth over recent years (see Figure 1).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing awareness about the benefits of using office shredders among businesses and consumers.
  • Rapid technological advancements in the office shredder industry that make these devices more efficient, durable and user-friendly.
