Home Furnishing Wholesaling in the US
The Home Furnishing Wholesaling industry has experienced significant growth over the five years to 2017, as the economy and housing market have grown. As demand from downstream industries has increased in line with consumer confidence and disposable income, the industry has grown. Additionally, improvements in existing home sales and housing starts have continued to drive demand, because home furnishings, such as floor and window coverings, are often installed when families move or buy new homes. Over the five years to 2022, industry revenue is forecast to continue growing, albeit at a slower pace, as rising consumer sentiment and household disposable incomes encourage consumers to upgrade furnishings in their homes. In addition, retailers will increasingly turn to wholesalers to restock inventory with inexpensive imported goods.
This industry wholesales a broad range of furnishings for homes, such as carpets, curtains, floor coverings, kitchen utensils, rugs and window shades. Wholesalers purchase goods from domestic and international manufacturers and then sell them to department stores, furnishing specialty shops and other respective businesses. This industry excludes furniture wholesaling.
