With more and more disruption in the market—through mergers, acquisitions, overseas players entering domestic markets—the print consumables industry in the Americas is experiencing an earthquake with prices and quality all being shaken up.
Ray Stasieczko, a veteran entrepreneur of 30 years in the imaging industry, prefers to call the new players as disruptors, rather than competitors.
What’s the difference?
“Disruptors bring the future to the present, while the competitors of the old way fight amongst themselves for relevancy in a dying market,“ Ray explained in his monthly RecyclingTimes
“If we keep hostile and refuse to accept there could be an alternative way, we might end up dying.”
Take Amazon as an example.
Recently Amazon Web services have become the world’s cloud leader. They went from the laughed-at competitor to the disruptive leader.
Now we see how disruptors and competitors play the game differently.
So the next question is, how should we tackle the disruptors? Should we fight, cooperate, or become one?
There’s a lot to be discussed on this hot topic, and the answers are essential to our business future. Getting hold of those answers is definitely worth making an effort to achieve.
