Strong foundation: Renewed construction and the continued move online support growth

Online Hardware & Tool Sales

Securing sales

Thanks to Americans' increasing move to online retailers, the industry has been growing strongly. It has faced some challenges, though, due to slowed residential construction and lower home improvement spending during the recession. Also, industry participants have had to continually improve their websites in order to compete with external competition, such as from physical retail stores. Despite these challenges, profit has continued to grow because of stronger supply chains and expanding economies of scale. As construction markets improve and shoppers continue to move online, industry growth will strengthen.

This industry retails a broad range of building renovation equipment and supplies via the internet. Hardware, plumbing, electrical and paint-related supplies and tools are the most commonly listed goods.

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.
