NSCA Electronic Systems Summer Outlook Forecasts 1% Growth in 2019

Overall, the forecast for 2019 construction put-in-place calls for a 1% increase this year, in comparison to the 4% growth rate of 2018.

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — National Systems Contractors Association has released its latest NSCA Electronic Systems Outlook report, which includes construction outlook information based on data from Q1 and Q2 of 2019, as well as a forecasted outlook for the remainder of the year and beyond.

The Outlook reports were initially created as a response to integrators asking about market conditions and trends so they could adjust go-to-market strategies. The association states it has followed and reported on industry conditions for more than 22 years, knowing that new construction is the best indicator of the future business climate for integrators.

Understanding construction put-in-place totals allows NSCA to predict patterns of slowdowns, recoveries, and market/geographic changes.

Overall, the forecast for 2019 construction put-in-place calls for a 1% increase this year, in comparison to the 4% growth rate of 2018.

In the Summer 2019 edition, the Electronic Systems Outlook report provides an updated view of construction data by market and electronic system/technology, offering details on:

  • Markets projected to do the best in terms of renovation and new construction
  • Construction forecasts for 2019 and beyond
  • Technologies growing in demand, and where growth is occurring
  • Developing a focused sales approach
  • New business opportunity potential

“Construction numbers look especially solid in corporate and government sectors as compared to 2018,” says NSCA Executive Director Chuck Wilson. “As always, the challenge for integrators will be finding qualified staff members so they can take on new work in growing markets. NSCA continues to support the Ignite program to attract new talent to the industry and help integrators fill the pipeline with qualified — and interested — employees.”
