New Building Construction & High-Value Products Fuel Market Growth

Gains will be driven by accelerated new housing construction, increased industrialization and urbanization in developing regions, improving income levels and increased spending on premium windows and doors, and more stringent building codes that promote the use of higher value, energy efficient products.

Key Findings in the Global Windows & Doors Study:

China & the US to Account for 65% of Global Sales Growth through 2021
China will post one of the fastest rates of market growth worldwide for windows and doors. Suppliers will benefit from increased spending on new office and commercial buildings, as well as from growing use of products with improved energy efficiency, security, and sound abatement features.

In the US, ongoing strength in new home construction, combined with expanding employment rates and the release of pent-up housing demand, will boost sales. Market advances will also be fueled by solid gains in consumer spending on home improvement projects, and by increased demand for more aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient windows and doors sold at higher price points.

Energy Efficiency & Low Costs Fuel Vinyl Window & Door Sales
Plastic windows and doors will record faster sales gains than metal or wood products through 2021, supported by their cost and performance advantages, which include superior insulation and low maintenance. Improvements to the aesthetics of vinyl products will also spur growth, as suppliers introduce more colors and textures that more closely resemble wood.

Metal will retain its position as the leading material type, bolstered by its widespread use in nonresidential buildings where durability and security are chief concerns. Sales of interior doors for new homes and businesses will buoy market gains in the wood segment. Ongoing preference for wood in higher-end residential applications will also underpin growth.

Leading Suppliers Use Broad Product Offerings & Acquisitions to Boost Market Share
The leading global window and door suppliers maintain their top positions by offering broad product ranges, investing in product development, and maintaining extensive manufacturing and sales operations in different geographic areas. The highly fragmented window and door industry has also seen significant acquisition and divestiture activity in recent years, with firms such as ASSA ABLOY, JELD-WEN, Masonite International, and Pella expanding their presence in key markets by acquiring complementary businesses.
