The activities of the Electricians industry cover all building, infrastructure and industrial markets. Electricians install new electrical, communications and industrial equipment, and repair and maintain existing electrical equipment and fixtures. The industry is primarily affected by trends in downstream demand from construction markets. A sharp deterioration in demand from these markets following the economic downturn had a marked effect on the performance of industry operators. The protracted recovery also took longer to filter through to increased demand for services than expected.
Operators in this industry install electrical systems in all kinds of buildings and civil engineering structures. These systems include electrical wiring, telecommunications wiring, street lighting, electric signals, fire alarms and burglar alarms. The industry excludes the monitoring of electronic security systems and the construction of communication and power transmission lines.
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.
