Long term trends such as price competition, wholesale bypass and competition from imports are factors stifling long term growth for the Flower and Nursery Stock Wholesaling industry. While rising per capita disposable income has boosted industry revenue since the economic downturn, this growth has not offset the overall decline of the industry over the five-year period. In the coming years, industry growth will stagnate. Companies that cannot sustain profit will close operations and exit the industry, while those that successfully integrate other services, such as floral wiring, internet sales and bespoke products into their models, will find new revenue streams.

Distributors purchase flowers and nursery stock from farmers, and they also buy florists' supplies from various manufacturers.
