About This Report


With the grain

As the construction markets go, so go the fortunes of lumber wholesalers. Fortunately for the industry, construction levels for both commercial and residential buildings are set for a rebound. Consequently, demand for wholesaled lumber used in construction will increase. Despite the revenue recovery, however, operators will face tighter profit margins due to rising input costs. Substitute building materials like aluminum will also threaten the industry's customer base.

Establishments in this industry distribute a range of lumber, plywood, millwork, and wood panel products to contractors, home improvement stores and hardware stores. This industry does not include wholesalers which distribute non-wood roofing and siding materials, nor does it include establishments which distribute timber and timber products such as railroad ties, logs, firewood and pulpwood.

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.
