Restaurant & Hotel Equipment Wholesaling in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Restaurant & Hotel Equipment Wholesaling in the US

The performance of the Restaurant and Hotel Equipment Wholesaling industry is driven by a variety of factors, including the state of the economy and travel-related trends. Over the five years to 2019, industry revenue grew as downstream restaurants and hotels increased their expenditures on capital improvements in light of improving consumer demand. Increased sales in downstream industries have justified the need for capital improvements, such as kitchen expansions and equipment upgrades in restaurants and hotels. Despite rising demand, industry profit margins slightly decreased. Over the five years to 2024, improving economic conditions will result in consumer spending continuing to grow. As consumers continue to dine out, hotel and restaurant operators will be encouraged to continue expanding operations, resulting in more equipment purchases.

Companies in this industry distribute, sell and repair commercial machines and equipment used in restaurants and hotels. These products include cooking equipment, dishwashing equipment, balances and scales, soda fountains and food-service fixtures and signs. This industry excludes the wholesaling of refrigeration equipment, which is included in the Refrigeration Equipment Wholesaling industry (IBISWorld report 42374).

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.
