Abstract
Warehouse Clubs & Supercenters in the US

Due to the low-cost, high-value products they offer, operators in the Warehouse Clubs and Supercenters industry typically perform well regardless of the macroeconomic climate; however, when businesses and consumers have deeper pockets, they are likely to spend more at industry establishments. Despite overall industry growth, steep declines in the world price of crude oil have kept revenue gains slow over the period. Many industry operators retail fuel at establishment-run gas stations; therefore, as the world price of crude oil declined over the five years to 2017, the industry was forced to lower gasoline prices, which stifled revenue growth.

Over the next five years, industry revenue will rise in line with the growing economy and recovering oil prices.

This industry includes large stores that primarily retail a general line of grocery products and merchandise items (e.g. apparel and appliances). Warehouse clubs offer customers a wide selection of goods, often in bulk and at discounted prices, in exchange for a membership fee paid by each customer. Supercenters are large discount department stores that also sell perishable groceries. However, unlike warehouse clubs, supercenters do not have membership requirements for customers.

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.
