Soft Drink, Baked Goods & Other Grocery Wholesaling in the US

Revenue for the Soft Drink, Baked Goods and Other Grocery Wholesaling industry fell over the past five years; however, given the poor performance of the overall wholesale sector, the industry's minor decline is a considerable feat. The decline was a result of rising fuel prices, economic fallout and low consumer confidence. In the five years to 2021, the industry is expected to pick up steam as the US economy continues to recover. However, wholesale bypass will be a key issue for the industry moving forward, as manufacturers and retailers look to cut costs by eliminating the wholesale middleman.

Operators in this industry primarily wholesale specialized grocery products such as soft drinks or baked goods. However, this industry does not wholesale frozen foods, dairy products (except dried or canned), poultry products (except canned), confectionery products, fish and seafood products (except canned), meat products (except canned), alcoholic beverages or fresh fruits and vegetables.

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.
