U.S. sales of non-current-carrying wiring devices slowed in 2013 and 2014 after experiencing sharp gains the prior two years. Demand surged in 2011 and 2012 along with the sharp increase in housing starts. However, nonresidential construction activity did not catch up until recent quarters. The nonresidential market was held down by continued declines in public construction activity. This situation began to change in the second half of 2014 and nonresidential market demand is expected to lead growth during 2015.
These and other industry trends are uncovered in this up-to-date Catalina First Look on Non-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.
