Report description

Grocery Wholesaling in the US

The Grocery Wholesaling industry will continue to contract in size as intense competition and rising production costs continue to drive food manufacturers and supermarkets to cut out the middleman. As manufacturers and retailers become more involved in the distribution process, demand and revenue will drop as the industry's services become less necessary. These factors will cause the industry to continue consolidating throughout the five years to 2018.

Grocery wholesalers act as the middlemen between food producers and retailers. They do little to transform products and are intermediaries in merchandise distribution. Wholesalers sell and distribute all general-line grocery products, and industry establishments generally do not specialize. Distributed products usually include dry groceries, perishable food and nonfood products found in grocery stores.

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.
