ANALYSING INFORMATION AND DATA FOR PROBLEM SOLVING2Task 1Germany has a very well positioned stationery market with respect to other Europeancountries. As per the research conducted by the Trade Association for Office Supply and WritingMaterials, it has been observed that the stationery industry of Germany has a total turnover ofaround€14.8 billion each year. This implies that the spending of each individual of Germany onstationeries is more than €182 in a year. Almost €35.2 from the €182 is spent on materials ofwriting and drawing. These statistics have made Germany the second highest spender forstationeries among all the countries belonging to the European Union (malaysia.ahk 2016).There are almost 2200 companies dealing with wholesale stationeries in the stationeryindustry of Germany. Half of these wholesale companies experience a net turnover of €500,000or less. Wholesalers dealing with the selling of office supplies, papers, business to businessintermediaries and writing instruments are also included in this 2200 companies (malaysia.ahk2016). The wholesalers dealing with the selling of office supplies, papers, business to businessintermediaries and writing instruments have opportunity to deliver directly to the customers aswell as to the wholesalers. Due to the merging of certain companies and exiting of somecompanies from the market, the number of wholesalers are decreasing from the market (Isokaneet al. 2017). The strategies that the wholesalers are adopting gradually are delivering to thecommercial customers directly without the help of the retailers. This results in widening theirscope of business (malaysia.ahk 2016).
