DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/h76dsv/domestic)
has announced the addition of the "Domestic
Replacement Door and Window Market Report - UK 2012-2016 Analysis"
report to their offering.
The UK market for replacement domestic doors and windows is large, but
mature. Volumes have been in steady underlying decline, but in 2014 the
market returned to growth. By value, the market is estimated to have
grown by as much as 9% at retail selling prices in 2014. This growth
partly reflects the release of pent-up demand due to rising consumer
confidence and an improving housing market.
The dominant position of PVC-u, especially in the windows and patio door
sector over the past few decades, is undeniable with the PVC-u dominated
direct sell route to market particularly strong in these product
sectors. Aluminium and timber are also important frame materials for
doors and windows - though aluminium is largely restricted to specific
applications or products. Composite doors have gained significant https://www.windowworld.com/ market
share and have grown rapidly in popularity in recent years.
Sustainability remains a core theme in this as in other construction
markets. New product developments in this market include a wider range
of colours for doors and window frames than previously. Some major
restructuring has been seen in this sector in the last 2 years, with
further rationalisation anticipated at all levels of the supply chain.
In particular, the composite door sector has seen significant change in
terms of acquisitions and companies exiting the market 2013/14.
Our forecast for the development of the door and window replacement
market for 2015 is for further good growth overall in the region of 5%,
given continued growth in the general economy, strong consumer
confidence and a good housing market. For the longer term, our forecasts
are for steady recovery of around 2-3% growth, reflecting market
maturity and a steadily rising economy. We anticipate that certainly in
the short term, the market will be primarily driven by demand from the
private rather than public sector, because of the impact of cuts in
government spending for the forecast period.
New niche sectors continue to offer opportunities - bifold doors have
been a recent example as homeowners look to open up access to their
garden areas with large, flexible glazed areas. In the longer term, the
UK best vinyl replacement windows replacement door and window market is likely to see further
consolidation at all levels.
