The transformation into biodegradable or recyclable products is a key factor for the increasing demand for stylus on the international market for writing and marking instruments. In recyclable PET pens many manufacturers have invested. This stylus is produced of recycled PET bottles that can attract environmentally conscious customers and therefore increase the market share in stylus in this sector. Pen continues to be the dominant tool of writing and marking and will demonstrate a comparable trend in the future. Writing becomes more and more exclusive and private. This is probably why some people talk about the fountain pen comeback despite other writing alternatives such as e-mails and encrypted texts. Various kinds of pen that uplift the entire pen sector include fountain pen, roller pen, gel pen and others. Fountain styluses and ball-point stylus are likely to be of great value for the industry because they are small in price and are easily accessible from all over the world. Teachers and learners are the major drivers for demand growth and will definitely add to the forecast period.
The toxic inks and the quantity of stylus made of unsustainable material were a number of negative aspects that impeded this segment's growth. The market situation, however, is evolving environmentally friendly products and tins, helping the industry to grow. Pencil is an ancient writing tool, despite technological advances in communication, is still preferred over other writing and marking tools.

Despite the enormous rise in digitalisation, off-line shops continue to dominate the worldwide market for writing and marking tools. Online shop restraints are surely the main driver for increased writing device consumption by offline shops.
However, the increasing literacy rate in the main economies has shown that customer purchasing behaviour is changing dynamically. People gradually shop online to use the services and digitization assistance. The absence of an opportunity at the point of purchase to test the goods physically remains the main obstacle to the internet buying of writing and marking tools. Online stores accounted for a market revenue share of 16.3% and market revenue of USD 790.1 million in the year 2018 and is expected to further account for a market revenue share of 17.6%.

Internet awareness of on-demand video-streaming services, often called e-learning, has increased over the review term among students and a growing number of free equipment. India's writing and marking tool market is a highly lucrative market for distinct products worldwide simply due to its size. The writing tools sector of today has become more new fads and the creation of new products, as it is the only factor in its progress. Montex, Reynolds, Cello, Linc, Lexi, Today, Luxor and Flair are major Indian players in the ballpoint pen industry.
