The global machinery, equipment, and supplies wholesalers market size is expected to grow from $3,177.62 billion in 2022 to $3,418.03 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.6%. The Russia-Ukraine war disrupted the chances of global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, at least in the short term. The war between these two countries has led to economic sanctions on multiple countries, a surge in commodity prices, and supply chain disruptions, causing inflation across goods and services and affecting many markets across the globe. The global machinery, equipment, and supplies wholesalers market size is expected to reach $4,381.54 billion in 2027 at a CAGR of 6.4%.
The surging demand for customized equipment is expected to propel the growth of the machinery, equipment, and supplies wholesale market going forward. Customized equipment refers to equipment that is not readily available to the general public, and is produced to meet unique specifications requested by a business or enterprise customer. Customized equipment sale requests are the additional sale requests for the improved version of the already available original equipment version which was distributed by wholesalers in the market. Therefore, the surging demand for customized equipment is driving the growth of the machinery, equipment, and supplies wholesale market. For instance, in December 2021, according to SEMI, a US-based industry association that represents the global electronics manufacturing and design supply chain, the global sales value of dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) semiconductors (a customized semiconductor) stood at USD 15.1 billion in 2021, a 52% surge from 2020. On the other hand, the global sales value of NAND semiconductors (a customized semiconductor) is USD 19.2 billion, a 24% surge from 2020. Therefore, the surging demand for customized equipment is driving the market for wholesale machinery, equipment, and supplies wholesale market.
