Over the five years to 2017, the TV and Appliance Wholesaling industry was tempered by wholesale bypass, as retailers increasingly purchased consumer electronics (e.g. TVs and stereos) and household appliances (e.g. dryers and ovens) directly from manufacturers. This wholesale bypass lowered prices for retailers, who avoided distribution mark-ups and eliminated the wholesaler's role as a middleman. In the coming years, an expanding building and contractor market, as well as technological developments in electronics, such as internet-enabled televisions and energy-efficient appliances, will support overall demand for industry-related products.
This industry wholesales a range of electric household appliances, such as refrigerators and washing machines, and consumer electronics such as TVs, DVD players and stereo systems. Goods are purchased from domestic and international manufacturers and then sold to mass merchandisers, department stores, home improvement stores and other appliance retailers.
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.
