The market for industrial products is changing.

A major driving force for this change are industrial marketplace startups. Like in retail, their number has grown over the last decade. They challenge the traditional trading structures and companies in the German industrial sector.

Therefore, we have analysed three of the most interesting marketplace startups in Germany:, Schüttflix and Reibus. Because all three offer new ways of distribution with new services and thus challenge the market structures in their respective industry of manufacturing, building materials, and metals. We show what makes them successful and what established companies could do to distinguish themselves in the competition.

  • What makes marketplaces so special
  • What are the economic logics that elevate them
