Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Over the past decade, the Mobile Telecommunications industry (IBISWorld industry report 6012) has been taking market share from the Wired Telecommunications industry (6011) due to its convenience and decreasing tariffs. This increasing substitution has negatively affected demand for wired terminal equipment, a major product segment in the Communication Equipment Manufacturing industry. In 2017, industry revenue is expected to grow 5.3% to $15.6 billion. Over the five years to 2017, industry revenue has been growing at an annualized rate of 7.5%.

Industry exports have also suffered over the past five years. Prior to 2007, exports accounted for more than half of industry revenue; in 2017, exports are estimated to contribute just 5.1%...

Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

The top four companies in the industry – Panasonic Group (China), Jabil Circuit Inc (China), Dongguan Inflight Electronic and Silitek Electronic (Guangzhou) Co., Ltd.– account for 27.6% of industry revenue in 2017, down from 36.0% in 2006. The decrease in industry concentration levels has been due to weaker demand for fax machines, which hindered revenue growth for some of the industry's larger companies.

The industry concentration level is not expected to rise sharply in future years. The technologies of major products are developing slowly, which means low entry barriers to the industry. Further, existing firms are expected to receive reduced revenue in the middle- and low-end product segments in future years.
