Telecommunications Networking Equipment Manufacturing in Canada
The Telecommunications Networking Equipment Manufacturing industry in Canada has become a mere fragment of what it was in 2000. This decline is primarily the result of external competition from foreign companies that have more-efficient cost structures and lower manufacturing costs. Nonetheless, from a nadir in 2013, the industry has recovered to an extent. This recovery was founded on improved supply chains and a dependence on contract manufacturing services to more effectively spread risk while cutting costs. Thus, revenue for wired telecommunications equipment, which includes products such as network switches and routers, is projected to rise over the five years to 2018, although this belies the broader historical decline of the industry in which this growth is situated. Moving forward, Canadian manufacturers are expected to diversify their trade partners, take advantage of global resources and invest heavily in new product development, although, due to the reliance on international demand, the anticipated appreciation of the loonie is projected to hinder expansion. In turn, revenue is expected to contract over the five years to 2023.
Operators in this industry manufacture wired (voice and data) telecommunications equipment, including telephone switching systems, telephones, answering machines, data bridges, routers, modems and gateways. Over the past 10 years, this industry has increasingly focused on manufacturing internet protocol-based telecommunications and networking equipment.
