Steady pulse: The aging population and new technologies will spur revenue growth

Medical Supplies Wholesaling in the US

After maintaining growth during the devastating recession, the Medical Supplies Wholesaling industry will continue to expand over the next five years. The US population is growing older, leading to a higher average age and greater need for medical supplies; furthermore, rising product prices have also contributed to industry growth. Over the next five years, industry revenue will be bolstered by health providers as they increase purchases of industry products that they delayed during the recession. Additionally, new products developed by industry operators for previously unsolved health issues is expected to help increase revenue.

Medical supplies wholesalers purchase medical and surgical equipment, instruments and supplies, store these items at distribution centers, and deliver these products and related services to medical and dental practitioners, clinics and hospitals.

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.
