Alarm, Horn & Traffic Control Equipment Manufacturing in the US
Revenue for the Alarm, Horn and Traffic Control Equipment Manufacturing industry is expected to decline over the five years to 2016. In recent years, growth in industrial production and investments in nonresidential construction have been outpaced by an increase in imports caused by an appreciation in the dollar. This made industry exports less competitive on the global market, as they were more expansive relative to similar products made internationally. While growing residential and nonresidential construction over the next five years are expected to support industry demand, the continued appreciation of the dollar will lead to growing imports, offsetting these gains. In addition, lower value-added products will shrink in size over this period, as the production of these items will be moved to countries where lower labor costs can be achieved to minimize per-unit costs.
