Medical Supplies Wholesaling in the US

The median age of the population has risen over the past five years, increasing demand for healthcare and driving revenue growth for the Medical Supplies Wholesaling industry. At the same time, pressure from manufacturers to bypass wholesalers altogether has limited the industry's growth potential. Furthermore, revenue growth is forecast to slow in the next five years as the Affordable Care Act continues to put the industry under heightened regulation and subject it to a medical device tax. Nevertheless, industry operators will continue to benefit from new product development.

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. The industry does not handle instruments and goods that are distributed to ophthalmologists, optometrists, veterinarians and opticians. This industry also does not include pharmaceutical sales.

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.
