A rebound in construction activity, the growing trend toward energy efficiency and aging electrical infrastructure will support electrical equipment wholesalers in the coming years. New building construction and federally funded highway and street construction will increase demand for products like light fixtures and wiring. Additionally, energy-related issues are anticipated to move higher on the political and social agenda in the next five years. Because of concerns about climate change, consumers are forecast to demand more green electrical products, giving the industry an opportunity for growth.
This industry includes firms primarily engaged in the merchant wholesale distribution of electrical construction materials, wiring supplies, electric light fixtures, light bulbs, security systems and electrical power equipment for the generation, transmission, distribution or control of electric energy (e.g. switchboards, circuit breakers, switches and fuses). This industry does not wholesale electronic components.
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.
