Communications Equipment Manufacturing in the U.S.

The need by people to communicate more efficiently whether for personal or business reasons is continuing to drive production of communications equipment and researches to improve existing technology. In the U.S., manufacturing of communications equipment is dominated by large companies that outsource production to take advantage of lower labor cost abroad. Owing to economies of scale, they are able to keep their production costs low. They also stay ahead of competition because of cutting-edge technology that is being constantly enhanced by in-house engineers and researchers. These companies produce radio and television broadcast equipment, cable television equipment, cellular phones, antennas, receivers and transmitters.

Other Communications Equipment

Small businesses are typically into the manufacture of gadgets considered as Other Communications Equipment, which includes alarm and fire detectors, traffic control equipment, intercom systems, and railroad signaling devices. For a small startup business, manufacture of security and fire alarm systems is ideal -- American expertise in this field of manufacture is well-known. And security and fire alarm systems have a steady following of buyers due to the ever-constant need of people to protect properties from theft.

Communications Equipment Manufacturing Business

One thing favorable for manufacturers of security equipment is the diversity of the industries that need alarm systems, signals and intercoms. Because they can sell to a variety of market types, including homes, commercial buildings, construction companies and auto manufacturers, they are not immediately moved by sudden and adverse developments that could affect sales. Also, there is less competition from exporters in the security equipment as compared to computer equipment manufacturing sector.

But like computer equipment manufacturing, security equipment manufacturing business’ foremost challenge is keeping up with advancement in technology to at least keep up with competition. It must constantly be on the lookout for new technologies to make manufacturing more efficient and cost-effective to be competitive in terms of price in the market. It must also keep its products up-to-date if not ahead in security systems technology in order to at least retain its market share.
