NSCA, the not-for-profit association representing the commercial integration industry, has updated its biannual Electronic Systems Outlook report for summer 2021.

It includes construction outlook information for the United States and Canada based on actual data from Q1 and Q2 of 2021, as well as a forecast for the remainder of 2021, 2022 and beyond.

The Electronic Systems Outlook report was initially established as a response to member questions about market conditions and trends, outlining vertical market outlooks, construction outlook summaries, and technology/systems outlooks in specific markets.

Overall, total U.S. engineering and construction spending is forecast to end 2021 up two percent compared to up five percent in 2020.

In the summer 2021 edition, the Electronic Systems Outlook report provides an updated view of:

  • Top markets for renovation and new construction.
  • Construction forecasts for 2021 and beyond.
  • In-demand technologies.
  • Where technology growth is occurring.
  • Developing a focused sales approach.
  • New business opportunity potential.

The information in this report helps integrators adjust their sales and marketing strategies. Understanding the most recent construction put-in-place totals helps them stay on top of slowdowns, recoveries, and market/geographic changes.

“No vertical markets are likely to end 2021 up more than five percent,” said NSCA Executive Director Tom LeBlanc. “However, the integration market is uniquely positioned to align itself with increased consumer confidence. Customers across all vertical markets are poised to invest in their facilities to accommodate a reimagined work environment. Integrators will continue to offer value for customers even amid reduced construction.”
