Powering up: Despite rising import penetration, stronger downstream demand will boost growth

The Power Circuit Breaker Manufacturing industry is expected to grow over the five years to 2017. Continued economic growth and recovering demand from the downstream commercial and residential construction sector have accelerated growth over the past five years. Over the five years to 2022, downstream markets will continue to grow, leading to greater demand for newly manufactured circuit breakers. Imports, however, are expected to accelerate over the next five years as the US dollar appreciates, decreasing the relative price of imported goods. As foreign competition rises, companies will increasingly eliminate peripheral labor and move operations overseas to maintain profitability. Remaining operations will be increasingly automated to mitigate higher wage costs...purchase to read more.
