About This Report


Wholesaly bypass and imports threaten

Wholesale bypass has been and will continue to be a threat to the industry. Powerful downstream retailers like Walmart and Costco will increasingly skip over the wholesale link of the apparel supply chain and source their products directly from manufacturers, forcing operator to cut prices to remain competitive. Offering more for less, however, can cut into wholesalers' profits and lead to faster industry consolidation. Wholesalers that do not have supply contracts in place with upstream manufacturers in low-cost Asian countries will suffer from the continuing price pressures.

Companies in this industry purchase and re-sell women's, children's, infants' and unisex clothing and accessories. Operators purchase apparel from manufacturers and sell these products to retailers, with minimum or no further development of the product. Most wholesalers in this industry undertake sales and administrative activities, such as establishing relationships with manufacturers and retailers, marketing and advertising, and storage and transportation of stock.

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.
