The world is an increasingly connected place. People communicate through a whole host of devices and services such as smartphones, landline telephones and the internet. Connections are made via radio and TV, and infrastructure such as alarm systems are now often connected to the authorities. Communication equipment is used to provide these connections and its manufacture is an increasingly important aspect of the global manufacturing sector.
Despite increased global demand, the industry is declining as cost pressures have forced many manufacturing operations to relocate offshore.
Firms in this industry manufacture telecommunication and broadcasting equipment. Products include telephones (fixed-line, cordless and mobile), data communications equipment, pagers, modems, burglar and fire alarm systems, transmitting and receiving antenna and radio and TV transmitters. Products also include other broadcasting equipment, including professional video cameras.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
