Laboratory Supply Wholesaling in the US

Demand for laboratory and scientific supplies will remain inexorably linked to downstream industries like pharmaceuticals and biotechnology. An increase in scientific research and development, as well as economic growth, will result in modest revenue increases during the next five years. Most prominently, accelerated growth in the biotechnology sector will bolster demand for industry products. Acquisitions are expected to continue as laboratory distributors aim to further diversity their product offerings. Wholesale bypass is nonetheless anticipated to limit growth.

Industry operators engage in the wholesale distribution of laboratory, scientific and school equipment and supplies. This industry excludes wholesalers that predominantly sell medical, hospital, and dental equipment and supply distribution.

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.
