Rubber eraser: Increasing technological change and disintermediation will rub out revenue growth

School Supplies Wholesaling

The School Supplies Wholesaling industry has struggled over the past five years as a number of trends have worked against the industry's core business model. In fact, the industry has been contracting for at least a decade and this decline shows no sign of abating. Over the past decade the role of wholesalers has been diminished since large retailers such as Wal-Mart and Target have been successful integrating the wholesale function into their supply chains, especially for low-end products like school supplies. Additionally, the growing prevalence of online shopping has also reduced demand of the industry. In the five years to 2019, the industry is expected to continue performing poorly, as many of the trends that have decimated the industry over the past five years are set to continue. While the industry's decline is expected to level out to some degree over the next five years, the move towards more technologically advanced classrooms that require less traditional school supplies will persist.

This industry comprises companies that primarily perform merchant wholesale distribution of school equipment and supplies. Operators that distribute books and furniture are excluded from this industry.

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.
