The Safety Equipment and Supplies Wholesaling industry has endured mixed conditions over the past five years. During the economic downturn, the industry was affected by the poor performance of its key downstream markets, namely the construction and industrial sectors. The economic downturn decimated investment into the construction sector, vastly reducing the level of construction activity, while poor business and consumer demand weighed heavily on the industrial sector. The slowdown of both sectors limited demand for safety equipment, causing industry revenue to decline in the base year of the period.
Companies in this industry wholesale safety equipment and supplies to businesses and consumers. Generally, these items are purchased in bulk for construction sites, factories and other places of work.
