Special Report Predicts Industry Growth Surge
Special report from EH Publishing Research entitled "The Rise (and Rise) of the Custom Electronics Channel" pinpoints hot product categories, reviews margins, analyzes state of housing and remodeling spending, and outlines successful integrator business models.
After years of stagnation from the recession, quantitative data and qualitative analysis shows that the custom electronics industry is ready to grow rapidly in 2013.
A special report called “The Rise (and Rise) of the Custom Electronics Channel,” part of the CE Accelerate initiative by EH Publishing’s Research Department, indicates the industry appears poised for double-digit growth in 2013 based on trends in housing and remodeling, as well as anecdotal evidence from integrators.
The report, which can be downloaded here for FREE, looks at the history of the Great Recession and then dives into the state of housing and product margins. It also analyzes successful and not so successful business models being adopted by integrators across the nation.
One of the most remarkable stats shows that residential investment in the U.S. is up 13 percent in 2012, while overall GDP growth is predicted to finish the year up just 2 percent. This figure is a leading indicator for the residential market, as historical data shows how residential investment fell off dramatically two years before the recession hit.
This CE Accelerate report is the first in a series that will subsequently look at manufacturer business models and consumer purchasing habits. The information will be presented as free download documents for the industry, as well as through webinars. The information is tailor-made to bring to investors and bankers, as well as to show your employees on the rosy prognosis in 2013.
The report is scheduled for discussion at the upcoming CE Pro 100 Summit in Houston, Nov. 6-8, 2012.
The future phases of CE Accelerate will be delivered live at EH’s new CE Exchange event, May 6-8, 2013 at the MGM Grand Foxwoods in Mashantucket, Conn.
