Computer & Packaged Software Wholesaling in the US
While demand for the Computer and Packaged Software Wholesaling industry has grown considerably over the five years to 2018, computer wholesalers have endured increasing price competition and a shift by manufacturers toward direct sales models. Although private investment in computers and software has increased, the price of computers and peripheral equipment has decreased substantially during the same period. Wholesalers have had to pass these lower costs onto their own customers, which has eroded industry revenue. Over the five years to 2018, industry revenue is expected to increase. Consumers and businesses alike have increasingly forgone traditional desktops in favor of laptops and tablets.
