Among material types, plastic doors and windows 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, according to the report. Plastic doors and windows have taken market share from wood and metal products in recent decades and will continue to do so over the forecast period.
