1. Distributor acquisitions are surging again in the electrical market.
2. The oil and gas blues have been a sad song for an awful lot of distributors, and if they sell to other parts of the industrial market, it’s an even more depressing tune.
3. Copper prices have had a more dramatic impact on distributor sales volume than I expected.
4. Everyone is talking about how LEDs are revolutionizing the lighting world, but distributors are worried about which new vendors will be around in five years, and how much to invest in such a rapidly changing technology.
5. The Internet of Things IoT just might be for real.
