After years of flat growth, the Dairy Wholesaling industry is set to get a boost from countries abroad, where widespread urbanization and increasingly Western consumption habits are increasing demand for dairy products. However, wholesalers will have to contend with the increasingly common practice of wholesaler bypass, in which retailers buy goods straight from manufacturers.
This industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in wholesaling dairy products (except dried or canned) including butter, cheese, cream, ice cream, milk and yogurt. This industry is made up of three different types of wholesalers: direct to retailers (non-merchant wholesalers), intermediaries between manufacturers and retailers (merchant wholesalers), and those who buy from the manufacturer but are integrated downstream into retail.
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.
