Research and Markets: United Kingdom Domestic Replacement Door and Window Market Report 2015

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (

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 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.
