Tool & Hardware Wholesaling in the US

Demand for Tool and Hardware Wholesaling industry services depends principally on the level of construction in the economy and secondarily on the vitality of manufacturing industries. After a slump in demand following the recession, downstream markets have rebounded, propelling industry revenue growth.

Although the industry does not manufacture hardware, it adds value to end users by providing customized varieties of hardware at low prices. Still, depressed activity in downstream markets undercuts the need for hardware tools altogether, slashing industry revenue. Continued demand from construction and manufacturing markets is expected to drive further revenue growth in the five years to 2022. Growth in downstream retail channels, such as home improvement stores, will also support the industry.

Operators in this industry purchase and distribute a range of hardware products, including hand tools, power tools, locks and keys, metal cutlery, fasteners and saw blades. Operators purchase these products in large volumes before distributing them in customized varieties and at competitive prices to retailers, other wholesalers and end-use industries. This industry does not distribute nails, disposable plastic cutlery, hand tools for motor vehicles or hand tools for precision equipment.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
