Live wire: Fluctuating downstream construction activity has caused slight revenue decline for the industry

The Wiring Device Manufacturing industry has exhibited moderately volatile revenue change over the five years to 2018; however, revenue has decreased overall. Industry performance is related to downstream industrial and construction activity, which have demonstrated large fluctuations. As residential construction activity increased sharply during the first half of the period, industry revenue followed. Additionally, other manufacturers that use industry devices increased production in response to higher spending. However, while downstream markets have improved, low commodity prices have pulled down industry prices and impeded industrial demand...purchase to read more.

Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • Import penetration from low-cost manufacturing regions further increased downward pressure on prices
  • The number of enterprises is expected to effectively stagnate
  • Industry exports to Canada and Mexico are expected to increase
  • Industry Report - Industry Locations Chapter

    The Wiring Device Manufacturing industry is currently estimated to have 567establishments. This is down from 571 establishments in 2013, which is largely due to offshoring and operators consolidating facilities. The number of establishments is expected to recover slightly in the next five years as demand improves. The locations of manufacturers in this industry tend to follow regional population density. Areas with a higher population density require more housing and can support more commercial businesses. Additionally, proximity to complementary industries and suppliers, like component and plastic manufacturers, influences the distribution of wiring device manufacturing establishments as well.
