Fair game: Wholesale bypass will hurt the industry, but high demand will stave off major declines

Abstract
Sporting Goods Wholesaling in the US
The Sporting Goods Wholesaling industry has coped with challenging conditions over the past five years, even as operators have benefited from more health-conscious individuals deeming sporting goods a necessary component of their fitness regimens. The inundation of low-cost sporting goods from online retailers has cut into demand for wholesale products. Despite substantial challenges, the industry has remained viable as a result of a more health-conscious public.

Furthermore, the popularity of gymnastics, ice hockey and field hockey has led to increased demand for industry products.

Nevertheless, small establishments that specialize in key product areas, such as bicycles and firearms, are expected to keep the industry afloat.Operators in this industry wholesale a range of sporting and recreational goods and accessories, such as billiards equipment, sporting firearms and ammunition, marine craft and equipment and pool supplies.
