Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Transmission Line Construction industry experienced strong demand for electric power and telecommunications infrastructure construction services over the past five years. Natural gas and renewable energy facilities are replacing the lost generation capacity, and industry services have been needed to construct generation and transmission facilities. Additionally, the need for high-speed fibre-optic networks has increased, further boosting industry demand. The industry is forecast to steadily grow over the next five years due to sustained demand for infrastructure construction. Similar to the previous five years, the electric power sector will invest in generation and transmission infrastructure to meet growing energy demand and environmental regulations... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

The Transmission Line Construction industry has a moderate level of capital intensity. In 2014, for every dollar spent on labour, industry firms are estimated to spend $0.26 on capital investments. Heavy machinery, such as lift platforms, pressure pumps and drills, can be very costly. However, only major contractors outright own heavy machinery; smaller contractors can typically rent construction machinery at relatively affordable rates. High tech components, such as transmission cables, smart meters and electric power turbines, are accounted for under industry purchase costs. As a result, capital costs are primarily comprised of office buildings, warehouses and vehicle fleets... purchase to read more
