Market Study: Plastic Windows - World (2nd edition)

Introduction

Digitization, sustainability, and energy efficiency belong to the most frequently cited keywords of our time. In the case of modern plastic windows, all of these aspects come together. In the future, they will perform important tasks such as automated ventilation, thermoregulation, or burglar control within the context of “smart homes”. Efficient plastic windows reduce heat loss and thus energy consumption of the building. This helps saving resources and money. In most countries of the world, market share of plastic windows increases accordingly. The present study provides an up-to-date insight into the world market for plastic windows which are used for buildings. (Windows for vehicles are not included. Ceresana offers a separate market report on the topic “Automotive Plastics”.) Besides data on production, import, export, and revenues, the study also provides information on demand for plastic windows. The market experts of Ceresana expect global demand to advance 3.5% per year until 2024.

Integrated Insulation Cores Increase Efficiency

Plastic window profiles are usually made of PVC. Modern windows have multiple insulating chambers that increase thermal insulation. Nowadays, product portfolios range from simple two-chamber systems to ten-chamber systems. The number of chambers is a major factor in the energy efficiency of the finished window. But also window profiles with integrated insulation core, for example made of hard EPS foam or PUR foam are gaining market shares. They improve insulation properties without having to increase the number of insulation chambers. The use of energy-efficient construction materials depends to a large extent on national and international support programs. Their volume and implementation can be very different in regard to individual regions. Hence, these aspects are analyzed closely in this study in each country profile (chapter 2.1.1 to chapter 2.5.5).

Construction Industry Problematic in Mexico and India, Prospects for China and Brazil Optimistic Again

Currently, the European market still accounts for slightly more than one third of total demand. The European share on the world market is likely to decrease further in the upcoming years. The highest growth rates will be registered in the regions Asia-Pacific (5.5% per year) and Middle East & Africa (4.5%). The market development depends to a large extent on the construction industry whose dynamic is subjected to a constant change and which can vary considerably from country to country. While impeding factors increased in Mexico and India, a positive development seems possible in Brazil in 2019. The fact that the construction industry in China grew again in 2017 had significant effects on the market for plastic windows.

Residential Construction Continues to Account for Highest Growth

This report also examines demand for plastic windows according to construction segments: New construction and renovation, as well as residential construction and non-residential construction are distinguished. From a global perspective, the segment residential construction continues to be the most dynamic sector. 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. The same applies to the construction segments new construction and renovation. On a global basis, the segment renovation accounts for a growth of about 4.0% per year which is slightly higher than the growth rates of the segment new construction.

The Study in Brief:

Chapter 1 provides a description and analysis of the global plastic window market - including forecasts up to 2024. Key figures such as production, import, export, and demand (in million units), as well as revenues (in US dollars and euros) are given for each world region.

Chapter 2 analyzes turnover, output, trade volume, as well as consumption of plastic windows for 16 individual countries. Furthermore, demand is split by the construction segments "new construction" and "renovation", as well as "residential construction" and "non-residential construction".

Chapter 3 examines the contrasting development of the construction segments on the individual regional and national markets.

Chapter 4 provides company profiles of the largest manufacturers of plastic windows – clearly arranged according to contact details, revenues, profit, product range, production sites, and profile summary. In-depth profiles of 85 producers are given, including Andersen Corp., Builders FirstSource, Inc., Jeld-Wen, Inc., LIXIL Group Corp., Masco Corp., Rehau AG + Co., Veka AG, VKR Holding AS, and YKK AP, Inc
