That’s according to new data from market research and business solutions firm The NPD Group, which tracks monthly sales data from the largest distributors and resellers in North America.

“Digital transformation has been well under way for the last few years, but has been further accelerated for customers, with the need to use technology to abide by pandemic health protocols and to help businesses survive,” Crosby said.
