Evaluating the Future of Your Wholesale Company?

Get Insights from Research

Owning a small business is not easy, and tomorrow is always uncertain. With news outlets always warning of an inflated stock market or recession that isn’t far away, it’s understandable that small business owners have a higher level of stress than most.

Here’s what analysts in the wholesale space see ahead:

First, due to the economic recovery and a potential tax break for businesses, wholesale company owners are very optimistic. In a recent survey, 41.3% percent of owners expect sales growth between five and ten percent in 2017, and 19.3% expect to see sales growth of 10% each year.2 Overall, owners in this industry are confident.

In the same survey, many business owners expressed optimism for growth because they were planning to branch out into new market segments to target new customers. Some were building a website for the first time or were updating it, while others are introducing mobile apps for customers. Embracing technology could lead to significant growth in the years ahead for your business.

In other promising news for wholesale enterprises, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that jobs for wholesale representatives will grow by 7 percent by 2024.3  This growth will be fueled in large part by technology and new products that will drive demand.

Finally, there is still incredible opportunity in the wholesale industry and several different ways your business could potentially expand. Artificial intelligence and increased automation will have big impacts on the distribution of goods. Preparing for these changes and embracing them can put your business ahead of the competition – resulting in lower overhead costs and improved efficiency. Still, they require a capital investment in your business.
