About This Report


The Construction Supplies Wholesaling industry is made up of both large-scale, multi-branch companies with operations spanning manufacturing and wholesaling, and small-scale independent merchants serving local markets. Operators sell items used in the construction process such as timber, paints and glass. The industry is being affected by wholesale bypass, which involves manufacturers supplying products directly to retailers and leaving wholesalers out of the supply chain. Through this process, manufacturers can reduce their costs and supply products to the final consumer more quickly.

Businesses that operate in this industry carry out distribution operations to either retailers or other users of building and construction materials, except steel and other metals. The products sold are the materials that go into a construction, rather than the tools used for construction. Businesses may also have manufacturing or retailing operations, though industry revenue only reflects the wholesale function.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
