The Transmission Line Construction industry has performed well over the past five years, driven by an expansion in demand from private electric power companies, which is by far the industry's largest market. In addition, movement away from coal and towards natural gas and renewable electricity generation has increased demand from this market. However, demand from the government and private telecommunications sectors have remained relatively stagnant. In the five years to 2019, demand from both government and private telecommunications customers is forecast to grow, and demand from private electric power customers is forecast to continue to expand as economic growth increases electricity demand.
Operators in this industry provide construction, repair, rehabilitation and maintenance work for a variety of forms of electric power and telecommunications infrastructure, including power lines, power plants, radio and television towers and cable infrastructure. Industry operators however, do not perform construction work on hydroelectric power station, the construction of broadcast studios or electrical maintenance work within buildings.
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.
