Today’s remanufacturing industry is enjoying strong revenue and profit increases, but countermoves by OEMs and other competitors affect the outlook for future growth. Lyra Research recently completed a U.S.-based primary research study among rechargers to examine the state of the remanufacturing industry. Cartridge Remanufacturing: Profits and New Challenges enables you to:
- assess how your business stacks up to other remanufactuers;
- understand the key reasons why rechargers say customers buy from them;
- see how rechargers rate their future growth opportunities and biggest business problems; and
- examine and compare your industry supplier experiences and expectations.
The report found that while remanufacturers reported competing with a variety of cartridge resellers, including retailers, contract stationers, and mail-order suppliers, the majority of rechargers said that their most important direct competitor was in fact another local remanufacturer (see figure ).
