The Online Hardware and Tool Sales industry has grown remarkably for more than a decade, as consumers are increasingly choosing to shop online rather than through more traditional venues. Online shopping has become more conventional for American consumers, primarily because of the convenience it offers and the potential savings consumers can capitalize on. The industry will continue to increase over the five years to 2020, especially as the overall construction market continues to recover and gain momentum. However, the looming threat of regulation may hamper sales, and heightened competition is projected to slow profit growth in the coming years.
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.
