Wholesale Trade in the US

Since the Wholesale Trade sector distributes goods from a range of industries including agriculture, mining, manufacturing and retail, its performance is largely driven by the overall state of the economy. Over the past five years to 2018, the sector has benefited from strong demand for goods from the retail trade sector on account of greater consumer spending, driven by a rise in both disposable income and confidence in the economy. Over the next five years to 2023, the Wholesale trade sector is expected to continue expanding. In addition to strong downstream demand from retailers and businesses, commodity-driven wholesalers are expected to see a reversal of fortunes as the prices of oil and steel rise.

The Wholesale Trade sector is an intermediary step in the supply chain process. Companies in the sector distribute goods from agriculture, mining, manufacturing and information industries to downstream markets, typically without any transformation.

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.
