Steely resolve: The gradual recovery in metal prices will boost industry revenue growth

Metal Wholesaling in the US

Recovering manufacturing and construction activity during the past five years has spurred growing demand for metal inputs, benefiting industry operators. Going forward, gradual growth in the price of steel and aluminum is expected to boost revenue growth and persistent demand for metal inputs in manufacturing, mining and construction industries will reinforce demand for industry services.

Metal wholesaling operators distribute primary metal products, both ferrous and nonferrous, to industrial and construction markets. Operators maintain inventory and may perform functions, such as sawing and cleaning, on a custom basis and as part of the distribution service. However, operators do not distribute precious metals such as gold, silver and platinum, and they also do not distribute insulated wire or recyclable metal scrap.

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.
