Growth & expansion opportunities:

The local economy around this business is growing. Competing local shops are become less common making this business a go-to for the surrounding communities. Increased marketing and sales efforts could drive more business. In addition, adding employees to increase ability to take on more work could increase revenue.


Sign Industry: Over the five years to 2025, industry revenue is expected to continue growing at an annualized rate of 0.9% to reach $16.4 billion. Total advertising expenditure is anticipated to continue growing during the five-year period. The simultaneous decline of competing advertising formats, such as newspapers and TV, will likely cement the industry's products as a key component of downstream advertising campaigns. Moreover, continued growth in business formation and nonresidential construction will increase the size of the industry's potential market, sustaining demand and encouraging the entrance of new sign manufacturing companies. - IBIS World. Niche sales and service: Over the five years to 2025, the industry is anticipated to continue growing and gradually bounce back from the setbacks it experienced more recently as the public health crisis comes to pass. As consumer confidence returns to growth over the next five years, the industry is forecast to expand. Per capita disposable income and the average age of the vehicle fleet are projected to rise, resulting in more vehicles that require industry products and enabling more individuals to afford industry services. Still, long-term stagnation is expected to continue inhibiting significant growth within the industry, even as the largest industry players are expected to increase their market share. Thus, over the five years to 2025, IBISWorld projects industry revenue will increase an annualized 1.5% to $66.5 billion.- IBIS World.
