The Electronic Part and Equipment Wholesaling industry primarily wholesales new and used electronic components, navigational and communications equipment and supplies. Over the five years to 2017, the industry has benefited from increased demand for communication equipment and electronic parts. Increases in consumer spending and corporate profit have boosted consumer and business demand for industry products. The declining price of electronic components is another primary driver of industry demand. As technology has evolved to create higher-power computer chips using less silicon, the cost of these components has steadily fallen. As a result, consumer electronics have become increasingly affordable despite sluggish income growth. Over the five years to 2022, growth in downstream industries and increased demand for electronic products and components will stimulate revenue growth.
