Poor profit: Supply shortages have raised purchase costs, hampering profit

Growing sales of smartphones, Wi-Fi routers and modems have supported electronic equipment wholesalers. Technology advancements and new smartphone model launches have encouraged people to update their handsets more frequently. The replacement cycles of electronic goods have been shortening, with businesses and consumers aiming to keep up-to-date with the latest technology. However, this trend has led to wholesalers' stocks depreciating faster, leading to a growth in software-as-a-service providers. Over the five years through 2022-23, revenue is forecast to contract at a compound annual rate of 2.5% to £16.7 billion.

Wholesalers in this industry sell electronic parts, telecommunications equipment, and blank CDs and DVDs. The industry does not cover discs and tapes that have already been recorded on. Selling computers and peripheral computer equipment is also not included in the industry.

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.
