Abstract

Confectionery Wholesaling in the US

The Confectionery Wholesaling industry includes merchant wholesalers that distribute candy and snack products to a variety of retailers, including grocery stores, convenience stores and mass merchandisers. Driven by renewed consumer spending on potato chips, chocolate candy bars and other packaged snacks, the industry performed well over the first half of the past five years. IBISWorld expects the next five years to remain sweet for the industry. Continued economic recovery will further boost consumer spending on confectionery and snacks, especially on gourmet, premium dark chocolate and gummy candy products. Although nutritional concerns will slightly hamper growth prospects, continued development and distribution of healthier confections are likely to mitigate this threat.

Operators in the this industry primarily wholesale a range of chocolate and nonchocolate candy, in addition to a range of savory snacks, such as nuts, popcorn and chips. Industry operators resell these products to supermarkets, specialty confectionery retail outlets, convenience stores and vending machine operators.

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.
