The US market for electric power equipment will reach $17.7 billion in 2006, driven by industrial spending and electric generating capacity by nonutility generators (NUGs). Switchgear relays and power transformers will grow the fastest based on growth in systems automation, power trading, voltage conversions and equipment upgrades.
This study analyzes the $14.7 billion US electric power equipment industry. It presents historical data for 1992, 1996 and 2001 and forecasts to 2006 and 2011 by market and product (e.g., low voltage switchgear, molded case circuit breakers, power circuit breakers, fuses and fuse equipment, duct, switchgear relays, power transformers, distribution transformers, specialty transformers, pole and transmission line hardware).
The study also examines the market environment, reviews regulations and technology, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 38 companies including ABB, Cooper Industries, Eaton, General Electric, Schneider, and Siemens.
