This industry profile provides a five-year forecast for Canada’s Electrical Equipment Industry.
- U.S. Housing Market—A spate of favourable news on the U.S. housing front is supporting exports of electrical equipment used in residential construction.
- Skilled Workers—Electrical engineers could soon be in short supply as baby boomers retire. The competition to attract these skilled workers will be fierce.
- Canadian Housing Market—A slowdown in lending, coupled with the cooling domestic housing market, will likely detract from sales in the household appliance segment.
