high percentage of dealers.
Nearly four out of every
10 companies (39%) are
home-based, meaning they
either work from their home
with no showroom, or they
actually use their home to
showcase technology to
potential clients.
About one out of every
three integrators (28%) has
a commercial offi ce location
with no showroom, and a
similar percentage (33%)
have a commercial offi ce location
with a showroom that
is either appointment-only
or has a retail element.
Owning a custom installation
operation remains a
small lifestyle business for
many; however, the industry
is maturing. Still, 11% of all
companies are one-person
shops, with another 19% of
companies having between
two and four employees. Last
year, the CE Pro State of the
Industry Survey indicated
a big jump in employment,
with the median number
of employees leaping from
eight to 13. At the time, we
suspected it was an outlier
statistic; however, this year's
study confi rms it was not.
The median number of employees
per company once
again is 13.
Meanwhile, larger companies
are becoming much
more common, with 28%
of all companies having
more than 30 employees.
One reason for the growth
trend could be an infl ux of
larger commercial-based
AV integration companies
entering the residential
market due to the softness
in the commercial market
from the pandemic.
The relatively small size
of a typical custom installation
company might also be
why only just over one out
of every three companies
(38%) took advantage of the
special government Paycheck
Protection Program
(PPP) loans available from
