The revenue estimates for this sector represent the fluid power product category only, not total company revenues. The shape of this sector has changed significantly over the past 10 years as the top three power transmission distributors have grown their fluid power segments through acquisition. Most recently, the category has expanded beyond traditional hydraulic and pneumatic into tangential product categories for a broader assortment of flow control and fluid management products.
That was no more evident than in the Applied-FCX deal in 2018, as well as private equity firm Clayton Dubilier & Rice’s 2017-2018 acquisitions of Core & Main (Waterworks/PVF), SunSource, Ryan Herco and The United Distribution Group (see page 4 for more details on these major deals impacting the fluid power sector).
Similar to the power transmission sector, fluid power distribution in North America remains highly fragmented with strong regional and local competitive markets.View 2018 Rankings

*Indicates 2018 annual revenue estimate not provided by the company, but by MDM research with best publicly available information. Some estimates remove other product category sales to more accurately reflect industrial/construction/MRO product sales, and may not be total annual corporate revenues.
Methodology Note: Unless otherwise noted, revenues reflect the 2018 fiscal year. Revenues for all companies in this report are in U.S. dollars. For companies who report their data in other currencies, we converted their revenues to U.S. dollars using the exchange rate in place on the last day of that company’s reported fiscal year to determine ranking.
