This report examines the US window and door components market by component type, market, window and door type, and window and door frame material in US dollars at the manufacturers’ level (i.e., excluding the value of features and services added between the manufacturer and end user). Historical data are provided for 2008, 2013, and 2018, and forecasts are given for 2023 and 2028.

Window and Door Hardware

The following components are included in the scope of this report:

  • components used in finished windows and doors manufactured by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) for new construction and replacement applications
  • components that are separately sold in the aftermarket for improvement and repair purposes

The major window and door component segments are:

  • frames (i.e., jambs, sill, head pieces)
  • glass (including window glass and glass insets, sidelites, and transoms for doors), which encompasses:
    • insulated glass
    • gas-filled glass
    • low-emissivity (low-E) glass
    • impact-resistant glass
    • glass with other types of coatings, including heat-absorbing tints and reflective coatings
  • door slabs and panels – the terms “door slab” and “door panel” both refer to the part of the door that opens and closes and that fits within the frame (fixed panels for patio doors are also included here)
  • window sash (i.e., rails, stiles, and grilles – also known as muntins – that are sold as part of the panel)
  • screens, including those fitted within the window frame, either on the exterior or the interior, and the panels of screen doors and retractable screens, but excluding specialty screens (such as those that enclose covered patios) and the value of separately sold aftermarket parts (e.g., screen mesh)
  • hardware (locks, latches, handles, hinges, cranks, rollers, balance rods, and any other parts used to assemble and install fenestration)
  • all other components (e.g., aprons, astragals, between-the-glass blinds and shades, bumpers, separately sold grilles, mullions, glass spacers, door thresholds, weatherstrip, tracks and track covers)

Excluded from the scope of this report are products that are not considered part of the actual window or door, including:

  • adhesives, paint, and sealants
  • exterior blinds and curtains
  • flashing
  • moulding and trim
  • separately sold security systems, door openers, and doorbell systems
  • shutters
  • specialty screens, such as screen enclosures
  • separately sold screen mesh and smart window film

In addition, this study excludes components used in the manufacture of windows and doors for automobiles and other transportation equipment, and cabinets; fencing gates; shower doors and bathroom stall doors; elevator doors; and pet doors.
