Major growth opportunities for legrand in new business segments

Spurred by technological breakthroughs, social change and the emergence of new needs, new business segments—digital infrastructures, energy efficiency, home systems and wire-mesh cable management—are expanding. In 2012 they accounted for 25% of Group sales.

Fueled by long-term social and technological change

Digital convergence and the digital economy are revolutionizing today's lifestyles. As barriers between telephony, television and internet technology crumble, "intelligent building" solutions are emerging—truly interactive new infrastructures that can manage rising volumes of data.

At the same time, consumers are responding to concerns about the environment, climate change and energy resources by becoming more and more energy-conscious, making the quest for energy-efficient buildings timelier than ever.

To meet these new needs, Legrand is developing innovative solutions for buildings.

Legrand develops products and systems to equip buildings with smart digital infrastructures that can manage data flows—from the internet, intranet systems, and email—as well as equipment ranging from protection and access systems to energy sensors and lighting management.
