Tough Sell: Spending will Rise, But Competition From E-Commerce Threatens Growth

Direct Selling Companies in the US

The lingering effects of the recession, including reduced consumer spending, negatively impacted the Direct Selling Companies industry early in the five years to 2015. However, revenue has gained ground since the economic downturn. Many Americans who lost their jobs in the wake of the recession established direct selling businesses as a means of income due to the relatively low start-up costs, thus boosting revenue growth. In the five years to 2020, the industry is expected to continue to grow, driven by improved consumer confidence and disposable income.

Direct selling is the retailing of a product or service from one person to another, away from a fixed retail location. Providers are referred to as independent consultants, distributors or representatives. Sales are usually done via home parties, workplaces, trucks or wagons, street corner carts or door-to-door. Direct sellers of fuel and food for immediate consumption are excluded from this industry.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
