I am pleased to announce the 2015 MDM Market Leaders – our annual directory of the largest distributors across sectors. This year we feature 15 sectors.
We present the Top 40 Industrial distributors, Top 25 Electrical distributors and Top 10s in Building Materials , HVACR and Plumbing, Fluid Power and Power Transmission and Bearings. We also present the largest distributors in electronics, fasteners, gases and welding equipment, hose and accessories, industrial PVF, plastics, safety and jan-san. Later this year, we will provide our annual update for pharmaceutical distributors, featuring commentary from Adam J. Fein, Ph.D.
When we compile these lists our goal is to provide an accurate picture of distribution in each sector. This has its challenges of course, as not all distributors are willing to divulge their revenues. We use several resources to estimate where to place these companies on the list. Learn more about the methodology we use to rank distributors.
This is the most comprehensive report in the wholesale distribution industry; we used the interviews we conduct throughout the year, as well as insight we collect leading up to the publication of this report, to compile the 2015 MDM Market Leaders and Distribution Trends Special Issue. Thank you to everyone who contributed.
MDM’s research team fully enjoyed the dozens of interviews we conducted for this report, and we appreciate the feedback provided by our readers who responded to our annual trends survey.
The lists of top distributors and company listings are free.
Premium subscribers can access the 2015 Distribution Trends Special Issue for free, which includes in-depth trend articles and key trends in individual sectors.
