Windows and Doors Market Report - Europe



The prices for construction materials are rising rapidly. The COVID-19 pandemic isn’t over yet, and the conflict in Ukraine is presenting the otherwise stable construction industry with another challenge. Ceresana has analyzed the European market for windows and doors that are used in buildings for the fourth time. The current industrial analysis also predicts some light on the horizon: While the demand for windows and doors in Europe is forecast to decrease slightly by 1% in 2022, our researchers predict a significant recovery from 2024 onwards. The European Union’s so-called “green deal” in particular gives cause for hope.




More Energy Efficiency for Europe

By 2050, Europe is to become the first “climate-neutral continent”. The construction sector plays a major role in this matter, because buildings currently account for around 40 % of total European energy consumption. The energy is mainly needed for heating, hot water, and air conditioning. If the EU Commission has its way, around 35 million private and public buildings are to be renovated by 2030. To achieve this, the European Union plans to provide more than EUR 72 billion in the coming years. Not only the manufacturers of insulating materials, but also the providers of construction elements profit from the state incentives to improve energy efficiency: Windows and doors can contribute greatly to energy saving, e.g., by integrating special insulating cores directly into the window profile.

Current Market Data About Windows and Doors

In addition to providing figures concerning demand, production, import and export (each given in million units), Ceresana’s market study also lists figures relating to revenues (in million euros). In the case of windows, the study focuses on the number, material, and area of application (new construction or renovation), but not on window fittings or glazing. With regard to windows, the number of window frames is thus the decisive factor. The figures relating to the door market include interior and exterior doors, but not gates (garage doors, garden doors, sliding gates, etc.). In the case of doors, the door leaf, frame and threshold are not counted individually, but are combined as a door unit.


The Study in Brief:

Chapter 1 divides the European demand for windows and doors into different materials (wood, plastics, and metal and material combinations like wood-aluminum) and the segments new construction and renovation, while revenues are split into the two categories windows and doors.

In Chapter 2, demand and production broken down by materials, sales data of windows and doors in euros, and import and export data are given separately for windows and doors in 23 countries. Additionally, demand for windows and doors in the 8 largest national markets (Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Poland, Spain, Turkey, and Russia), with windows and doors being analyzed separately, is divided into the segments new construction and renovation. The quantities are given in units of millions. Additionally, the window and door markets are broken down in detail according to various base materials: wood, plastic, metal, and material combinations. Both demand and production figures are given.

Chapter 3 offers useful company profiles of the most important door and window manufacturers, neatly structured according to contact data, revenues, profit, product palette, production sites, a brief profile as well as product types and application areas. Detailed profiles are given for 62 of the most important window and door manufacturers, such as Deceuninck NV, Hörmann KG, IFN-Holding AG, Inwido AB, Jeld-Wen A/S, profine GmbH, Rehau AG + Co., Roto Frank AG, Schüco International KG, VEKA AG, and VKR Holding A/S.
