The Automatic Level Instrument Manufacturing industry has declined during the past five years as a result of strong import penetration, despite the recovery of the industry's downstream markets in the wake of the housing crisis. In the coming years, the industry is expected to continue declining, as strong competition from imports erodes gains derived from an improving economy. As the US economy continues rebounding, housing starts are forecast to increase strongly, and a rise in income and consumer sentiment are expected to continue. However, industry growth will be impeded by rising import penetration.
This industry manufactures automatic leveling instruments, which are optical instruments used in surveying and building to transfer, measure or set horizontal levels.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
