As modern life now has a number of electronics that are used on a daily basis – whether it is a phone, tablet, computer, or related device – it has been produced and developed by an electrical engineer. The demand for electrical engineering services has mushroomed in the past 20 years given that electronics are now a very important part of modern-day life and are ubiquitous. As such, these businesses are always able to work with inventors, third-party engineering firms, computer companies, and related entities that require the development of electronics and electrical systems. The demand for quality and competent electrical engineering services does not wane during times of economic recession. Additionally, these firms are able to generate very high gross margins from their services given that this is a service-oriented business. The barriers to entry are extremely high given that most people that are electrical engineers have several advanced degrees in the field before they set out to start her own firm. These businesses are able to generate revenues not only by developing new products on behalf of their client base, but they’re also able to produce moderate revenues from prototyping services. In fact, as many electrical engineering firms expand they will often offer limited manufacturing and prototyping services in order to boost the revenues of the business.

Given the strong and continued demand for electrical engineering services coupled with the economically insulated revenues – almost all financial institutions are willing to put up the necessary capital in order to launch a new electoral engineering firm. Of course, an electrical engineering firm business plan is going to be required. Like all other types of business planning materials, this document should contain a three-year profit and loss statement, cash flow analysis, balance sheet, breakeven analysis, and business ratios page. As it relates to industry research, there are approximately 250,000 qualified electrical engineers that provide services to about 15,000 companies throughout the United States. Each year, these businesses aggregate we generate about $75 billion in revenues providing payrolls of about $35 billion. Given that these firms only operate in conjunction with other businesses, a demographic analysis that focuses on the types of companies will be targeted should also be included within the business plan. This includes taking a look at annual revenues, annual profits, and the approximate amount of money that we spend each year on electrical engineering services. It is not uncommon for electrical engineering firms to only have a handful of clients that spend several hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars per year on these services.

An electrical engineering firm SWOT analysis should be produced as well. As relates to strengths, again – these businesses are always able to generate revenues given electronics must be at the state-of-the-art technology level in order to remain competitive in the market. As such, a qualified electrical engineer will have no problem generating revenues from their services. The operating costs are considered to be moderate given that the biggest expense is typically payroll. Once new contracts are acquired the number of electoral engineers on staff can easily be expanded. The startup cost associated with the new logical firm typically run anywhere from $100,000  to $300,000 depending on the type of equipment that is going to purchase and use in conjunction with operations.

For weaknesses, this is a highly competitive market and given the ubiquitous nature of the Internet – many engineers and other countries are able to provide similar services to the general public at lower cost. However, many companies have a substantial concern regarding intellectual property and it will continue to want to use American-based businesses in order to ensure that if anything were to happen that they have legal recourse. During times of economic recession, these businesses are generally able to remain part profitable but major and larger corporations may scale back some of their development operations. However, this is a very limited risk.

The opportunities for a electrical engineering firm are boundless. This is due to the fact that these companies can only take on projects from third-party companies but they can also develop proprietary electronics and software that is used in conjunction with third parties. As such, these businesses can typically produce revenues that are speculative in nature from the development of new products.

For threats, automation is always a threat for many industries but for electrical engineering firms this may actually be a boon. As software becomes smarter these automation aspects to the industry can actually assist with expediting work and making the development of new electrical engineering projects more cost-efficient. However, certain functions that are geared towards junior level engineers may be automated in the future.

An electrical engineering for marketing plan should be developed as well. For most, a website showcasing the services offered by the firm, prototyping services, hours of operation, preliminary price information, an area of expertise should be fully included within the marketing plan and within the website. There does not really need to be a expansive presence on social media given that is going to be exclusively companies that work with the electrical engineering firm on an ongoing basis. As such, while it is extremely important to develop a comprehensive marketing plan – this is going to be one of the more moderate areas of difficulty for an entrepreneur looking to enter this market. Most importantly, most electrical engineers have extensive contacts within the industry that they are able to call upon in order to generate a client base very quickly and at the onset of operations. Additionally, expos and conventions are a great way for most new electrical engineering firms to develop new contacts especially among companies that have specialized electronics that need to be developed on an ongoing basis. Many electrical engineering firms maintain small print advertisements in specialized trade journals.

Electrical engineering firms are always going to be in demand especially as the number of electronics that are used in daily life increases. Many of these firms will engage in a specialized nature such as working specifically with medical devices or with information technology. As such, one of the ways that the risks associated with electrical engineering from can be reduced by developing a specialized niche especially in the field that is always able to remain profitable despite a negative change in the economy. The growth of this industry is going to be tremendous over the next three decades as more and more advances in technology occur.
