Computer & Packaged Software Wholesaling in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Computer & Packaged Software Wholesaling in the US

Although demand for computers and software has grown strongly over the past five years, operators in the Computer and Packaged Software Wholesaling industry have struggled with price erosion and direct sales by software publishers. Although private investment in computers and software has increased, the price of computers and peripheral equipment has decreased substantially during the same period. However, federal tax cuts in 2017 raised corporate profit and, in turn, investments in new computer equipment in 2017 and 2018. The industry is expected to again decline over the five years to 2024. Demand for computers and software will remain steady, particularly from business customers, but shifts in the distribution of computers and software will continue, increasingly cutting wholesalers out of the supply chain.

The Computer and Packaged Software Wholesaling industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in wholesaling computers, computer peripheral equipment, loaded computer boards and computer software. Manufacturers’ sales branches and offices with wholesale functions are included within this industry.

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.
