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

Revenue for the Soft Drink, Baked Goods and Other Grocery Wholesaling industry has increased over the past five years, as the number of households and disposable income levels have steadily risen in conjunction with postrecessionary economic recovery. These factors have helped increase demand for industry products, particularly nonessential grocery items, such as sweet baked goods, which consumers cut from their grocery budgets during tough economic times. The industry is expected to experience further revenue growth over the next five years, as disposable income levels are projected to continue to rise, and specialized wholesalers are expected to increasingly capitalize on the growing market for high-end, value-added and health-conscious products.

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.
