Windows & Doors

As Quoted In Guida Finestra

Growth in US window and door demand through 2016 will be spurred by a rebound in housing completions and gains in building construction spending from a depressed 2011 base.

US demand to rise 10% annually through 2016

Demand for windows and doors in the US is forecast to rise 10 percent per year to $34.2 billion in 2016. Growth will be spurred by a rebound in housing completions and gains in building construction spending from a depressed 2011 base. From 2006 to 2011, both housing completions and construction expenditures dropped precipitously, causing window and door demand to experience a similar decline.

Residential market to rebound and post double-digit annual gains

Aided by the rebound in construction spending, the residential market is forecast to post double-digit annual advances in demand for windows and doors through 2016. Builders will incorporate such value-added products as windows with triple-pane insulated glazing and doors with insulated cores to promote energy efficiency, boosting value growth. Residential improvement and repair demand for windows and doors is forecast to advance at a more modest pace. Many homeowners concerned with rising energy costs took advantage of tax credits offered between 2009 and 2011 to replace older windows and doors with newer, more energy efficient models. Such homeowners will be unlikely to engage in further window and door renovation projects in the near future.

Plastic windows & doors to see the fastest gains

Among material types, plastic windows and doors will see the fastest gains through 2016, advancing nearly 12 percent per year to $9.8 billion. Growth will be driven by continuing demand for plastic products because consumers perceive them as energy efficient and providing a high degree of value. Plastic windows and doors have taken market share from wood and metal products in recent decades and will continue to do so over the forecast period. Vinyl windows and fiberglass doors are relatively inexpensive, but offer such performance properties as durability and minimal maintenance requirements.

Metal windows and doors accounted for the largest share of window and door demand in 2011, and are expected to continue to lead the market in 2016. Rebounding housing activity will spur gains, especially in the South and West. Increasing nonresidential building construction spending will also boost metal window and door demand. Metal products are often installed in nonresidential structures because of their durability and low cost. Demand for wood windows and doors will grow at a double-digit annual rate, but be checked by competition from plastic windows and doors, which provide superior energy efficiency and durability at lower cost.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $18.6 billion US window and door industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by material, product, market and US region.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 37 industry players, including Andersen, Jeld-Wen, and Pella.
