Telecommunication Networking Equipment Manufacturing in the US
The Telecommunications Networking Equipment Manufacturing industry produces wired telecommunication equipment including network switches, routers, modems and gateways. This industry has experienced constant revenue declines over the past five years despite increasing corporate profit, access to credit and number of broadband connections. Domestic demand has greatly declined over the current period and much of US demand has been satisfied by imports. Consequently, over the five years to 2019, revenue is expected to decrease. Imports have been a major threat to the industry over the past five years.This is largely due to the lower cost of production abroad, resulting in less expensive products for domestic consumers. Over the five years to 2024, revenue is expected to decline. Meanwhile, imports are expected to fall as demand for lower-quality wired telecommunications equipment decreases and demand for more sophisticated, domestically manufactured equipment remains steady. Nonetheless, companies will continue to increase their manufacturing capacity in low-wage countries, hindering exports.
This industry manufactures wired (voice and data) telecommunications equipment, including telephone switching systems, telephones and answering machines, data bridges, routers, modems and gateways. In addition, over the past 10 years, the industry has increasingly focused on manufacturing internet protocol-based telecommunications and networking equipment.
