REPORT SNAPSHOT

Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Metal Wholesaling industry is one of the largest industries in the United States. The industry's performance depends on demand from manufacturing markets and movements in metal prices, since high metal prices increase the value of inventory and boost operator revenue. Over the five years to 2016, volatile metal prices have plagued metal wholesalers. Moving forward, gradual growth in metal prices is expected to boost revenue growth. Meanwhile, persistent demand for metal inputs in manufacturing, mining and construction industries will reinforce demand for metal wholesaling services.

What is the Metal Wholesaling in New York industry?

Metal wholesaling operators distribute primary metal products, both ferrous and nonferrous, to industrial and construction markets. Operators maintain inventory and may perform functions like sawing and cleaning on a custom basis and also as part of the distribution service.
