Companies in the Toy and Craft Supplies Wholesaling industry in Canada have encountered significant barriers to success in recent years, due in large to increased wholesale bypass. However, industry revenue has been supported by overall economic growth, rising levels of disposable income and increased consumer confidence. Moving forward, industry revenue is projected to decline as the toy manufacturing market becomes increasingly consolidated and demand for analog toys remains limited. However, this decline will be mitigated by improving consumer conditions and an expected appreciation of the Canadian dollar.
This industry wholesales various toys and craft supplies, including dolls, games, fireworks, playing cards, model planes and arts supplies, excluding video games. Merchandise is largely sourced from domestic and international manufacturers and sold to retailers such as small toy and hobby stores, big-box merchandisers and discount department stores.
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.
