Home Furnishing Wholesaling in the US
The Home Furnishing Wholesaling industry has experienced significant growth over the five years to 2018, as per capita disposable income and private spending on home improvements have increased. Growth in these economic benchmarks has translated into increased demand for home furnishings at the retail level. The wholesale landscape has shifted over the past five years: home furnishing manufacturers have internalized distribution processes, bypassing wholesalers and selling goods directly to retailers. Still, industry revenue is forecast to continue growing over the five years to 2023, albeit at a slower pace, as pent-up demand from the depressed housing market has been satisfied during the current five-year period.
This industry wholesales a broad range of furnishings for homes, including 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 businesses. This industry excludes furniture wholesaling.
