The TV and Appliance Wholesaling industry took a hit when disposable income dropped during the recession. In the past five years, stagnant downstream demand has pressured industry sales. Additionally, the industry has been hurt by manufacturers and retailers engaging in wholesale bypass. In the five years to 2019, industry growth will be driven by the recovering economy, as well as trends promoting energy-efficient appliances and technologically advanced products. The continuation of wholesale bypass is projected to hinder some of this industry growth by driving out smaller and less-profitable operations.
Operators in this industry wholesale a range of electric household appliances, such as refrigerators and washing machines, as well as consumer electronics like TVs, DVD players and stereo systems. Goods are purchased from domestic and international manufacturers and then sold to mass merchandisers, department stores, home improvement stores and other appliance retailers.
