Men's & Boys' Apparel Wholesaling in the US

Revenue growth for operators in the Men's and Boys' Apparel Wholesaling industry has remained sluggish over the past five years. With decreased discretionary spending, retailers offered steep discounts to consumers to retain sales. Due to weak downstream demand, wholesalers were left with excess inventories and slashed their own prices to move stock. In the coming years, as consumers regain confidence and purchasing power, demand for men's and boys' apparel will increase.

Businesses in this industry purchase men’s and boys’ clothing from apparel manufacturers and sell these products to retailers, generally with minimal or no further product development. Most wholesalers in this industry undertake sales and administrative activities, such as establishing relationships with manufacturers and retailers, marketing and advertising their products, and storing and transporting stock.

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.
