MDM’s new report, Markets Forecast, offers quarterly revenue projections for the wholesale distribution industry, plus breakouts for select categories, for the current calendar quarter and the next fiscal year. The inaugural Forecast looks at post-pandemic projections for distributors as a whole, plus specific sectors.
MDM’s quarterly survey in partnership with investment banking firm Baird reveals that distributor revenues decelerated sharply in 2Q but not as bad as feared at the beginning of the pandemic shutdown. One consensus among more than 550 participants: Distributors began rethinking the way they manage talent.
Tracking industry and customer data can provide distributors with a window into future planning as the market continues to shift during the coronavirus crisis. Channel Marketing Groups David Gordon suggests elements to consider, ranging from pricing pressures to the availability of talent.
