The Transmission Line Construction industry has declined during the past five years, primarily because the recession reduced downstream infrastructure investments. While new developments in transmission technology helped to shore up some demand, stagnant electricity consumption and prices have reduced infrastructure investments from electricity utilities. However, demand for electric power and telecommunications infrastructure is projected to grow steadily over the five years to 2019. The electricity sector is projected to undertake major infrastructure expansions as utilities further integrate renewable energy into the power grid, while telecommunications service providers are expected to further expand high-speed data services.
This industry provides comprehensive design, construction, maintenance and repair services for electric power and telecommunication transmission infrastructure, including transmission lines, towers, cables and other utility structures. Moreover, industry operators include general contractors, design builders, civil engineers and other specialty contractors.
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.
