MUMBAI, June 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

This new Market data report is a comprehensive analysis of a fragmented $8.9 billion industry that is vital to the support of small and home-based businesses and start-ups: business services, including private mailbox centers, copy shops and all other services. The business was hurt by the Great Recession and hundreds of private mail centers either closed or were acquired by FedEx or UPS and were re-branded. In-store copy shops at Office Depot and Staples have also hurt independents. However, since these retail stores serve local customers and have diversified and expanded their services, they are well positioned to take advantage of the coming wave of new start-ups and wave of entrepreneurism and self-employment (selling via Amazon, EBay, Etsy) that's spreading across the U.S.
