Sluggish residential construction activity, coupled with increases in private-label product sales and wholesale bypass, has weighed on the Kitchen and Diningware Wholesaling industry. Since replacement needs for industry products are typically low, household expenditure is often directed towards other categories of goods. Steady growth of the Australian population, however, has provided slight relief for the industry, as has the expansion of outer-suburban dwelling construction. Over the five years through 2014-15, industry performance has been mixed.
Companies in this industry are primarily engaged in the wholesaling of china, glassware, cutlery, tableware (including crockery) and other kitchen and diningware.
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.
