The 2018 Top 50 Promotional Products Suppliers
Each year, Promo Marketing sets out to compile and rank the largest promotional products suppliers. The 2018 Top 50 Suppliers list is the result—a comprehensive ranking of the industry’s power players by 2017 sales volume, with additional in-depth analysis on mergers and acquisitions, geographic trends, sales statistics and more.
It was a big year in promo, with the Top 50 suppliers totaling $5.3 billion in revenue—a 14.9 percent increase over the prior year’s $4.6 billion total. Mergers and acquisitions played a major role here, with one large merger (alphabroder and Prime Line) and a number of smaller ones significantly altering the promo industry landscape.
Overall, 39 of the Top 50 suppliers reported year-over-year revenue increases, and many suppliers reported double-digit percentage growth. Among the top risers, iClick grew its sales 275 percent, S&S Activewear grew 76 percent and Mid-Nite Snax grew 50 percent.
In addition to 2017 promotional products sales volume, the list includes:
• Prior year sales volume and rank
• Location and principal(s)
• Number of employees and locations
• Additional analysis on mergers and acquisitions, geographic trends, sales statistics and suppliers that did not report financial results
