CEDAR RAPIDS, IA, Sept. 1, 2016 – NSCA’s Electronic Systems Outlook has been recently updated for Summer 2016, and now includes information based upon actual data from Q1 and Q2 of 2016, as well as forecasted information for the remainder of the year.
Free for many NSCA members, and available for purchase starting at $199 to others, this updated report provides the newest, most relevant indicators of new business opportunities for integrators. By tracking new construction starts and renovations across multiple markets in the commercial buildings industry, integrators can easily see which verticals are poised to do well this year – and in the years to come.
In its Summer 2016 edition, NSCA’s Electronic Systems Outlook provides an updated view of construction data by market and electronic systems/technology. Current conditions look good for the construction industry. The Electronic Systems Outlook Summer 2016 report provides details on:
- The markets that are (and aren’t) poised to do well
- The construction forecast for 2016 and beyond
- Technologies that are growing in demand
- Developing a focused sales approach
- Keeping tabs on growth and new business opportunities
NSCA and FMI, which partner to bring the integration industry this report, note that the summer forecast has not changed much from the prior report. Growth for construction put in place is expected to be 6%. The largest growth markets are lodging, office, commercial, and educational construction. With the exception of commercial construction, all are strong markets, but growing slower than what was experienced in 2015. The possibilities for connectivity seem endless, and that will translate into more optical fiber cable and wireless access, along with more warehouses and data centers.
“Unemployment remains low, so more people have jobs and are spending money,” says NSCA Executive Director Chuck Wilson. “On the other hand, low unemployment translates into higher wages and difficulties finding workers. To get the most out of these reports, our Member Advisory Council is available to help integrators digest this data and turn it into strategic business opportunities.”
The NSCA Electronic Systems Outlook is free for NSCA Gold and Platinum members, and available for purchase at $199 for Bronze and Silver members. It can be purchased by non-members for $399. Non-members can become NSCA members for $595 and receive this report as part of their membership package, which offers access to discounted education and training opportunities, updates on regional and national government affairs issues, free monthly industry webinars, and other exclusive industry research.
