According to World Windows & Doors, a new study from The Freedonia Group, global demand for windows and doors is expected to reach $223 billion in annual revenue in 2017, a 7.1% change that is in stark contrast to its growth during the 2007-2012 period. The company said in a statement that the recovery would be spearheaded by several developed countries, most notably China, which maintained the world's largest window and door market in 2012 and is expected to make up 36% of total global demand in 2017. This is due in part to burgeoning incomes and home sizes in the country.

Global demand for windows and doors is expected to rise 7.1% annually to $223 billion by 2017, significantly exceeding the growth rate of the 2007-2012 period. Growth will be driven by recoveries in the building construction markets of many developed countries, although gains will be somewhat exaggerated by a weak 2012 base, particularly in the US. Additionally, continued strong increases in building construction activity in developing areas will boost demand. These and other trends are presented in World Windows & Doors, a new study from The Freedonia Group, a Cleveland, Ohio based industry market research firm. - See more at: http://www.ggpmag.com/newsitem.asp?newsID=1853#sthash.hd6wIosS.dpuf
