General-Line Building Supplies Wholesaling in Canada
The General-Line Building Supplies Wholesaling industry in Canada achieved overall growth over the past five years due to relative stability in the Canadian housing market. New residential home construction rebounded quickly over the period, aided by the Canadian government's stimulus package, which provided much needed investment to the ailing sector. The industry was also buoyed by demand from nonresidential construction and residential renovation projects, which proved resilient throughout the period. While investment in building projects rose over the period, industry operators continued to contend with adversity in the form of competition from large suppliers. A number of large upstream manufacturers have developed their own in-house distribution divisions to replace wholesalers. The outlook for the industry over the next five years is comparatively more subdued. The major obstacles in the way of growth will be Canada's housing market, which continues to grow despite low oil prices that have impacted the economies of certain provinces.
