Retail and Wholesale Coverage

Retail and Wholesale Industry Overview

Technology is driving the wholesale and retail market’s growth faster than before
The wholesale and retail industry is an integral part of every industry supply chain in the world. The wave of digital shopping poses a significant threat to the brick-and-mortar formats of the retail industry, however no decline in the retail market in brick-and-mortar stores indicates the existing demand from customers for physical experience. The wholesale and retail industry as a whole is very important to the world economic growth. By 2022, The Business Research Company expects the wholesale and retail market to grow to $76 trillion.
The wholesale and retail market consists of sales of wholesale and retail services and related goods by entities (organizations, sole traders and partnerships) that provide the service of making goods available to consumers in convenient quantities and locations.  Retailers are independent organizations in the distribution channel for consumer goods that buy goods from wholesalers or direct from manufacturers, break bulk, store goods, display goods for sale either physically or online, and sometimes deliver. Wholesalers are independent organizations in the distribution channel for consumer goods that buy in bulk, store goods, break bulk and sell primarily to retailers, professional authorities or to other wholesalers rather than to consumers. Both retailers and wholesalers take ownership of the goods and so bear the risk of carrying inventory. They also reduce the total number of transactions required for the process of transferring goods from manufacturers to consumers.
Direct sales by manufacturers is included in retail. We exclude manufacturer sales through their own stores in manufacturing market
