Right at home
Appliance and home electronics wholesalers took a hit when disposable incomes dropped during the recession, but the economic recovery will usher in a period of growth as consumer sentiment recovers and Americans resume spending on big-ticket items like appliances and home entertainment products. Helping drive the industry's rebound will be the green movement. As consumers become more environmentally conscious and as the government continues to offer rebates to buyers of energy-efficient appliances, wholesalers will experience increased demand for these products from retailers.
Operators in this industry wholesale a range of electric household appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines as well as consumer electronics such as TVs, DVD players and stereo systems. Goods are purchased from domestic and international manufacturers and sold to mass merchandisers, department stores, home improvement stores and other appliance retailers.
