Sales of lumber and building materials through professional and retail distribution channels is a substantial industry in North America. These outlets provide a sense for real market sell-through activity since they directly serve builders, contractors and DIY homeowners. This segment of the LBM distribution industry continues to undergo structural changes as competition heats up between channels, suppliers seek new outlets, companies consolidate with large dealers getting bigger through acquisition, and the looming threat of increased on- line transactions.
