The Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) is a U.S. electronics manufacturing trade association, which is organized along a number of product and market lines. The EIA is an industrial group who has an interest because the presence or absence of standards determines the market size for a product or set of products. The EIA is accredited by ANSI, and their involvement in the Commercial Building Telecommunications Wiring is significant in the industry.

A good example of an EIA standard is the EIA-232 interface between DTE and DCE. This standard enables a substantial market for modems and other such devices.
