The Wireless Tower Construction industry sharply increased over the past five years as business infrastructure investments recovered following the recession. Strong demand for mobile data and high-speed connections has stimulated demand from the downstream telecommunications sector, which had been relying on older existing technology to reduce costs. Despite high internal competition, industry profitability has increased largely due to strengthening telecommunication infrastructure investments as well as improvements in contract pricing of wireless services and better efficiencies. Demand for telecommunication infrastructure construction is anticipated to steadily grow over the five years to 2020. Local and state government investment, which includes funding for telecommunications projects, is also anticipated to slowly recover. Additionally, telecommunications service providers are expected to steadily expand their high-speed data services, while the existing infrastructure will require considerable maintenance and repairs.
