The Electronic Part and Equipment Wholesaling industry has been hampered by increased offshoring of production and wholesale bypass practice, which cut wholesalers out of the local supply chain. Declines in disposable income and consumer spending brought on by the global economic crisis in 2009 had reduced consumer and business demand for industry products, encouraging customers to postpone purchases or turn to cheaper options. In the coming years, recovering disposable income and consumer spending, expanding business profit, downstream industry growth and increased demand for electronics products and components will result in industry revenue growth. However, this industry will continue to battle declining prices for electronic parts and communications equipment, as domestic manufacturers face tougher pressure from imports and wholesalers face competition from manufacturers.
Companies in this industry wholesale electronic parts and equipment. Products include antennas, broadcasting equipment, communications equipment, computer chips and boards, radio and radar equipment, electronic condensers and connectors, integrated circuits, modems and navigational equipment. Wholesaling activities exclude electrical apparatuses and equipment, wiring supplies, construction material, electrical appliances, TVs and radio sets.
