Power cut: Industry revenue declines as foreign competition remains intense

The industry comprises players that manufacture various types of electric motors, generators and transformers. International trade has a significant bearing on industry performance, with exports expected to account for 58.6% of revenue in 2019-20 and imports forecast to satisfy 58.7% of domestic demand. Subdued activity in key downstream industries has weighed on industry revenue over the past five years, with weak demand from downstream manufacturing industries compounded by low volumes of electricity production and distribution, weighing on industry demand. Rising construction activity has supported industry demand to some extent, though rising import penetration has caused operators to lose domestic market share. Industry revenue is expected to decline at a compound annual rate of 1.5%...read more.

Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • Weak demand from manufacturing industries has weighed on industry performance
  • Cost advantages held by overseas manufacturers have supported greater import penetration
  • The replacement of older electricity infrastructure should support demand over the next five years
  • Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

    The level of capital intensity is determined by comparing the human and capital equipment factors of production, using wages and depreciation costs as proxies. Comparatively high depreciation costs are indicative of a high level of investment in depreciable assets, such as buildings and equipment, and therefore high capital intensity. Conversely, comparatively high wage costs are indicative of high labour intensity.The Electric Motor, Generator and Transformer Manufacturing industry has a medium level of capital intensity, with an estimated capital-to-labour ratio of 1:4.33 in 2019-20. This indicates that for every £1.00 spent on capital, an estimated £4.33 will be spent on labour. The...purchase to read more.
