US electrical transmission and distribution equipment demand will rise 3.6 percent annually through 2011. Growth in nonutility generation and an improved regulatory outlook supporting investment in the electric grid will aid gains. Specialty transformers and metal-clad and -enclosed switchgear will lead gains.
This study covers the $17.5 billion US electrical transmission and distribution equipment market. It presents historical demand data (1996 2001, 2006) and forecasts for 2011 and 2016 by product (e.g.| switchgear and switchboard apparatus| transformers| pole and transmission line hardware| electric meters) and market (e.g.| electric meters| industrial and nonutility generators| residential sector| commercial sector| government sector).
The study also considers market environment factors| details industry structure| evaluates company market share and profiles 38 major players including ABB| Eaton| Siemens| General Electric| Schneider Electric| and Cooper Industries.
