Sporting Goods Wholesaling in Canada
Over the five years to 2018, the Sporting Goods Wholesaling industry in Canada has grappled with competition for leisure time among consumers to allocate toward sports and other recreational activities. This trend, which has constrained demand for sporting goods, was further exacerbated by significant changes in the industry's downstream markets over the past five years. In April 2013, the Canadian government eliminated tariffs for some sporting goods, enabling wholesalers to secure low-cost sporting goods from global manufacturers, lowering purchase costs. Despite this, robust price-based competition has limited the extent to which wholesalers can markup product pricing. Over the five years to 2023, industry revenue is expected to continue rising as a more health-conscious consumer base and higher participation in fitness will spur demand.
This industry wholesales a range of sporting and recreational goods and accessories, such as billiards equipment; pool supplies; sporting firearms and ammunition; and marine craft and equipment. This industry does not include wholesalers of athletic apparel and footwear, automobiles, other motor vehicles or transportation equipment.
