Global demand for windows and doors is forecast to rise 6.8 percent annually through 2015. Gains will be exaggerated by an extremely weak 2010 base in the developed world, particularly in the US. The residential building construction market will outpace the nonresidential building construction market.
This study analyzes the $138 billion world window and door industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by product (windows, doors), material (wood, metal, plastic), market (residential, nonresidential), application (new construction, improvement and repair), world region and for 22 major countries.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 34 industry players, including YKK, Jeld-Wen and JS Group.
