Market Study: Plastic Windows - World

Introduction

Global Market for Plastic Windows Used in Buildings

When discussing the topic of energy efficiency of building constructions, insulation of house walls or roofs is oftentimes in the spotlight. However, even the best insulation is useless when important thermal bridges such as windows are not taken into consideration. Plastic windows are already able to achieve great things in the matter of energy efficiency; development is continuously proceeding, e.g. by integrating special core insulation material directly into the window profile. Plastic windows are also in the lead by now in regard to price, variability, durability, and appearance. Typically, they are made from PVC profiles.
The present analysis offers an overview over the world market for plastic windows which are used for buildings. Windows for vehicles are not included. Besides the market data on production, import, export, as well as the generated revenues, the study provides information on demand for plastic windows. Figures on demand are also given for the several construction segments: New construction and renovation, as well as residential construction and non-residential construction. Market researchers at Ceresana forecast global demand for plastic windows to increase to a volume of almost 270 million units until 2023.

We also offer a market study on the European market for windows and doors.

Modern, Efficient Windows for Ambitious Climate Targets

Quality and structure of plastic windows made from PVC profiles have changed considerably during the past years due to the introduction of multiple-chamber systems. Parameters such as the heat transition coefficient U continuously achieve better results. Efficient, durable, and at the same time affordable windows are essential for the realization of fundable energy saving concepts in the segment building construction. The ambitious targets of the Parisian UN Climate Change Conference in Winter 2015 can only be fulfilled by further increases in energy efficiency of buildings. Therefore, manufacturers of plastic windows will be able to benefit from national and international support programs in the upcoming years. However, the volume and the practical realization of national support programs can differ considerably from region to region. Hence, these aspects are analyzed closely in this study in each country profile (chapter 2.1.1 to chapter 2.5.5).

Construction Industry in a Phase of Weakness in some Emerging Countries

Demand for windows is preliminarily dependent on activities in the building construction. Accordingly, development of the market has varied strongly in the past years from country to country: There are numerous different trends even within Europe. The consequences of the economic crisis had differing effects on the national construction industries in regard to manner and intensity. Also today, there are other influential factors prevailing in Russia than in the south of Europe. At present, the construction industry in some emerging countries like Brazil or India is affected negatively by corruption scandals, dissolution of the government, lack of regulations, or insecure investment conditions. However, an enormous future potential for plastic windows exists also in these countries since their market shares have been small until now and the advantages are becoming more and more evident. For example, Ceresana expects the revenues generated with plastic windows in Asia-Pacific to rise by, on average, 7.4% p.a. until the end of our forecasting horizon in 2023.

Residential Construction as a Driver of Growth for the Demand for PVC Windows

Besides the construction segments new construction and renovation, this study also analyzes demand for plastic windows in regard to residential construction and non-residential construction. On a global perspective, residential construction is the main driver of growth for the demand for PVC windows at present. The ongoing trend of urbanization in large parts of the world is a decisive factor in this. Creating affordable living space in the cities is one of the most urgent aspects of many national development plans. However, the distribution among the construction segments in the regions and countries can vary considerably. Therefore, this distribution is given separately in each country profile for the specific country. On the global perspective, approx. 53% of all plastic windows are used in new constructions. Yet, in regard to the specific countries, there can be significant differences in the distribution.

Market Study in Brief:

With this market study, you receive the most comprehensive and up-to-date analysis on the global plastic windows market. Thereby, Ceresana evaluates the market size, market share and market trends of this industry. The market study is divided into following chapters:

Chapter 1 provides a presentation and analysis of the market for plastic windows, including forecasts up to 2023. Characteristic figures such as production, import, export, and demand (in million units) as well as revenues (in USD and EUR) are provided for each world region.
Chapter 2 analyzes revenues, production volume, import and export volume, as well as demand for plastic windows individually for 16 countries. Furthermore, demand is split by the construction segments "new construction" and "renovation", as well as "residential construction" and "non-residential construction".
Chapter 3: This paragraph focuses on the depiction of the different developments in the construction segments of the several regional and national markets.
Chapter 4 provides useful profiles of the largest manufacturers of plastic windows, clearly arranged according to contact details, turnover, profit, product range, production sites, profile summary, products, and applications. Detailed profiles are given for 84 producers, such as Andersen Corp., Atrium Corp., Deceuninck N.V., Harvey Industries, Inc., Jeld-Wen, LG Hausys Ltd., Masco Corp., Pella Corp., Ply Gem Holdings, Inc., YKK AP, Inc., and VKR Holding AS.
