Metal Wholesaling in the US

The Metal Wholesaling industry was severely hammered by the recession. This is because 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.

Companies in this industry primarily wholesale metal products and contain service centers that maintain inventory and perform functions such as sawing, shearing, bending, leveling, cleaning and edging. Services provided by the Metal Wholesaling industry also include cutting-to-length, slitting, shearing, roll forming, shape correction, surface improvement, blanking, tempering, plate burning and stamping.

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.
