Demand from building, developing and general contracting largely determines revenue growth for the Electrical Equipment Wholesaling industry. Additionally, demand for many of the industry's products depends on industrial production and electrical power consumption. As manufacturing increases and those companies invest in equipment they purchase industry goods to outfit their factories and as intermediary components. Over the five years to 2022, the construction and housing market is expected to continue growing, albeit at a slower pace. This should maintain demand for electrical equipment products and boosting industry revenue.
This industry includes operators primarily engaged in the merchant wholesale distribution of electrical construction materials, wiring supplies, electric light fixtures, light bulbs, security systems and electrical power equipment for the generation, transmission, distribution or control of electric energy (e.g. switchboards, circuit breakers, switches and fuses). This industry does not wholesale electronic components.
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.
