Playing along: Demand for toys and crafts will revive, but rising competition will cut into profit
Toy & Craft Supplies Wholesaling in the US
Back in the game: Revenue will improve modestly over the next five years, as demand for discretionary toys and games increases. Still, competition from vertically integrated toy and craft supply manufacturers (i.e. those that have distribution functions) will continue to erode supply contracts available to wholesalers, offsetting some of the industry's growth. Since wholesalers need to discount their prices in order to compete, profitability will remain relatively flat.
