Apparel, Accessories & Footwear
The outsourcing of manufacturing allows for these corporations to place a greater focus on the design, wholesaling, distribution, marketing and retailing associated with these products.
Building Products & Furnishings
E-commerce platforms are increasingly being scrutinised by governments for their ability to avoid certain regulations and tax. This has caused for a growing popularity to increase the regulation in the industry due to its highly unregulated nature when compared to the brick and mortar industries.
Household & Personal Products
Certain companies sell their products exclusively to other platforms or have independent representatives for their products. Depending on the nature of the product being manufactured there may be a range of regulation and requirements to be met.
Multiline & Specialty Retailers & Distributors
The Multiline and Specialty Retailers & Distributors industry encompasses a variety of retailing categories such as department stores, mass merchants, home products stores, and warehouse clubs, as well as a smaller segment of distributors like electronics wholesalers and automotive wholesalers.
Common to these companies (except for the distribution segment) is that they manage global supply chains to anticipate consumer demands, keep costs low, and keep products stocked in their brick-and-mortar storefronts.
Toys & Sporting Goods
The level of manufacturing integration varies among and within segments of the industry; manufacturing is based primarily in Asia, with China accounting for a majority of production.
