Computer & Packaged Software Wholesaling in the US
Although growing demand for industry products has benefited the Computer and Packaged Software Wholesaling industry, the rise of the direct sales model has dampened growth prospects for operators. Even though the economy has stabilized and strengthened and corporate profit has grown over the five years to 2016, industry revenue is estimated to decline, as growing downstream demand has not been enough to offset lower per-unit prices and the shifting electronics supply chain landscape. Despite these negative trends, IBISWorld estimates that industry revenue will grow over the five years to 2021.This growth will follow a rise in unit sales of computers and computer-related products, as per capita disposable income and corporate profit rise, enabling consumers to focus on modernizing their technological infrastructures.
