In 2012, Key Note estimates that the value of the UK postal and courier/express market declined by 13.4%. This decline is largely a result of declining revenue at courier and express businesses operating outside the universal service obligation. Due to reduced consumer and business expenditure and, in turn, depressed demand for parcel delivery services across the UK, this segment of the market experienced significant decline in 2012.
