Current-Carrying Wiring Devices

Current-Carrying Wiring Devices

U.S. current-carrying wiring device sales are estimated to have topped $7.0 billion in 2014. Sales growth has averaged some 7.0% per year between 2011 and 2014 as residential and nonresidential construction activity recovered from the deep 2009 recession. The recovery was initially sharpest in residential markets as housing starts soared. However, growth is expected to be led by nonresidential market purchases during 2015.

These and other industry trends are uncovered in this up-to-date Catalina First Look on Current-Carrying Wiring Devices. This First Look also provides data on product line sales, price trends, exports and imports, factors driving demand, plant operating ratios and profitability, and the competitive environment. Data is compiled and analyzed from 1997 to the current year and the Executive Summary provides a five year forecast.
