Lucintel Estimates Global Window and Door Industry to Reach $170.7 Billion by 2018

   January 1, 2013
The global window and door industry is forecast to reach $170.7 billion by 2018, as developing economies are expected to register good growth. The industry is highly fragmented and the competitive landscape has changed somewhat during the last five years. The industry is anticipated to benefit from the growth in construction of residential and non-residential buildings. Demand in the window and door industry is driven by construction of new buildings and improvement and repairs of existing buildings.

Lucintel, a leading global Management Consulting and market research firm, has conducted a competitive analysis on the industry and presents its findings in “Global Window and Door Industry 2013-2018: Trend, Profit, and Forecast Analysis.” The window and door industry is fragmented, with demand based on remodeling, replacement, and new construction activities around the world. Continued demand for vinyl windows and doors has made plastic the fastest-growing material in the window and door industry.

The report highlights that the industry suffered from the decline in building construction activities. Europe faced a surge in unemployment levels in 2012 as most of its countries were locked in recession. Increasing unemployment rates suppressed the domestic demand, leading to low economic growth.

The study also discusses the industry’s major drivers. Expanding construction activity in the residential sector was a prime growth driver. Demand in the window segment was boosted by consumers’ increasing interest in energy-efficient products. New construction activity in residential units such as houses, condominiums, apartments, etc., and non-residential units such as office buildings, restaurants, and shopping malls is crucial to the industry.

This study is intended to provide industry leaders with insights into the global window and door industry, providing up-to-date information on the market share, profit margins, capabilities, and strategies of the leaders. The report can helps current suppliers realistically assess the leading competitors. In addition, the study provides executives strategically significant competitor information, analysis, and insight, critical to the development and implementation of effective marketing and sales plans.
