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

Metal Wholesaling in the US

The Metal Wholesaling industry was severely hammered by the recession; metal wholesalers and service centers supply metal products to almost every manufacturing and construction industry, and the economic downturn hit these downstream buyers hard. However, resurgence in demand for metal products from these downstream markets, including the increases in residential and nonresidential construction, will aid profit growth.

Operators in this industry distribute primary steel, copper and aluminum products and other nonferrous metal products to end-markets. Operators maintain inventory and may perform functions such as sawing and cleaning on a custom basis and as part of the distribution service. Operators in this industry do not distribute precious metals such as gold, silver and platinum; 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.
