Business Operation

Competition / Market:

The Used Goods Stores industry has experienced increasing revenue over most of the five years to 2021. The industry has historically performed counter cyclically to the overall economy, but as income levels and consumer confidence increased early during the period, industry revenue continued to climb. Revenue also increased due to changing consumer and fashion trends, leading to an influx of demand from young consumers. Moreover, numerous social media outlets and TV shows dedicated to altering or selling used merchandise have become popular over the past five years, driving consumer demand for industry products. However, the industry faced significant challenges as a result of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, leading industry revenue to decline 16.9% in 2020 alone.

Overall, industry revenue has fallen at an annualized rate of 1.0% to $16.8 billion over the five years to 2021, including an anticipated increase of 7.2% in 2021 alone. During the period, the number of industry operators has decreased. A number of for-profit operators, however, have joined the industry after being drawn by the increasing popularity among individuals for exchanging used goods for cash. The entrance of these operators has resulted in the average industry profit margin increasing during the period. As a result, nonprofit companies have shifted pricing strategies to account for this increased demand, in addition to increased capabilities to take on online competition. However, the coronavirus pandemic in 2020 has resulted in the anticipated exit of many operators unable to weather the temporary closure of nonessential businesses. The number of enterprises has ultimately decreased, falling at an annualized rate of 0.6% to 70,958 companies over the five years to 2021.

Moving forward, industry revenue is projected to rise, increasing at an annualized rate of 0.7% to $17.4 billion over the five years to 2026. Industry operators are expected to endure a lasting effect of the coronavirus pandemic, as consumers have become increasingly comfortable making purchases online. External competition will likely continue to increase as families with higher income levels seek out new, rather than used, items. However, in response to heightened competition, used goods stores are expected to become more specialized, carving out niches in high quality, low-priced used merchandise, such as designer clothing or musical instruments.--IBIS World
