2000-2001 Industry Potential to Participate in Supply Chain Systems (Oct 2000)

March, 2002


To help organizations identify industries within the U.S. that have high potential for participating in supply chains in 2000 and 2001, Computer Economics ranked each industry by NAICS code in terms of its potential supply chain volume. Figure 1 shows the top ten industries that have the highest potential dollar amount flowing through supply chain systems in 2000 and 2001. The automobile wholesale sector’s relative rank of 100.0 should indicate to supply chain operators looking to promote their systems that this industry has a high supply chain density and has many organizations to participate in new supply chains.
