While Wal-Mart generates more sales and buys more inventory than Home Depot, it doesn’t necessarily have greater relative purchasing power than Home Depot. Purchasing power is rightfully measured with respect to the amount of goods one buys from individual suppliers. In the case of Wal-Mart, its sales (and purchases) are spread across a wide variety of product categories, with home furniture and outdoor living products accounting for less than 7% of sales. If Wal-Mart’s and Home Depot’s total 2013 revenues of $476 billion and $78 billion are used for comparison, Wal-Mart’s estimated sales of home improvement products at about $33 billion (7%multipliedby total sales of $476 billion) are likely to be less than that of Home Depot. Assuming that both Home Depot and Wal-Mart purchase their products from the individual suppliers in largely the same proportions, Home Depot’s purchasing power with home improvement product suppliers isn’t necessarily inferior to that of Wal-Mart.
