November 8, 2007 -- According to a recently released study from Amadee+Company, the U.S. will spend $56 billion in 2007, and $393 billion during the next five years, for telecom engineer, furnish and install (EF&I) products and services, i.e. the telecom capex. This forecast includes both the wireline and wireless segments of the market.

The study defines the market as the sum of all functions (E, F, I), in each segment, supplied by OEMs and subcontractors. Captive activities are excluded since, by definition, they are not an available market. Market drivers include the conversion of wireless systems from analog to digital (3G and beyond) and the need for more wireline capacity as consumer broadband adoption rates increase.

AT&T and Verizon are identified as the leading purchasers of EF&I products and services, Emerson Electric and Alcatel-Lucent as the leading OEM suppliers, and MasTec and Dycom Industries, along with Henkels & McCoy, as the leading subcontractors.

The report analyses telecom capex, both wireless and wireline, as well as spending by the major carriers. The total market, as well as the wireless and wireline segments, are sized for E, F & I. Each segment is then analyzed OEM vs. subcontractor. The OEM and subcontractor spaces are also sized in terms of E, F and I activities. The competitive environment is discussed in detail. Finally, financial comparisons along with profiles of leading players are given.

The study, "Telecom Engineer, Furnish and Install - A Market and Competitive Analysis: 2007-2012," is priced at $2,900. For further information, click here.
