The Kitchen and Diningware Wholesaling industry's performance has been limited by sluggish residential construction activity over the past five years, which has reduced demand from retailers for industry products. Furthermore, increasing private-label product sales and instances of wholesale bypass have restricted industry margins. Since replacement needs for industry products are typically low, household expenditure is often directed towards other categories of goods. However, the steady growth of the Australian population supports industry demand, as new households require industry goods.
