Industry operators source fabric and household linen from domestic and international manufacturers and sell it on to retailers and other manufacturers for further processing. The Textile Wholesaling industry has struggled through tough conditions and enterprises have long been dropping out of the industry. Operators have been suffering the effects of wholesale bypass, when retailers and other downstream manufacturers source their stock directly from manufacturers, cutting out wholesalers altogether. The development of e-commerce platforms has supported this by allowing retailers to obtain stock from foreign manufacturers over the internet with minimum hassle.
Firms in this industry wholesale various textile products, including yarn, thread, fabric, cloth, household linen and haberdashery. The industry excludes textile fibre wholesaling.
