School Supplies Wholesaling

The School Supplies Wholesaling industry has struggled over the five years to 2018 with low demand and declining supply-chain relevance. A broader trend toward ecommerce has been particularly pronounced in this industry, leading more consumers to bypass retailers and the wholesalers that supply them. In addition, brick-and-mortar retail sales have increasingly shifted to big-box department and discount stores. Furthermore, the industry has contended with wholesale bypass and constraining government funding for education. As a result, industry revenue has declined over the past five years. Industry revenue is expected to continue decreasing over the five years to 2023 as schools increasingly invest in newer technologies, such as tablets and laptop computers, instead of paper-based products.

This industry is composed of companies that primarily perform merchant wholesale distribution of school equipment and supplies. Operators that distribute books and furniture are excluded from this industry.

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.
