US demand for windows and doors will reach $40 billion in 2012, a slowdown from the 2002-2007 pace. Demand for more costly products that enhance home security and energy efficiency will promote value gains in the key residential market. Plastic will be the fastest growing window and door material overall, while wood remains the largest.
This study analyzes the US window and door industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1997, 2002 and 2007, and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by material (e.g., wood, metal, plastic), type (e.g., flush doors, panel doors, patio and storm doors, double-hung windows, casement windows, prime windows, specialty and storm windows), market (e.g., residential, nonresidential, new construction, improvements and repairs) and region.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 38 major players, including Andersen, Jeld-Wen and Masonite.
