There are several limitations in assessing the window and door fabrication market – differences in product definition, residential and commercial sector variations, market volatility, level of vertical integration in fabrication and installation, glazed / unglazed supply etc. However, given these limitations, we estimate that, at trade prices, the windows and doors fabrication market was worth around £ 2.1 billion in 2010. Defining factors in this market in 2010 are: market maturity, fragmentation, competition, cost-management, building legislation, ‘green’ building, austerity and diversification.

There is significant over-capacity in the industry resulting in an intensely competitive market, especially in the PVC-U sector - prices and margins remain under pressure as companies compete for business. Whilst some improvement has been seen in the new build sector, the commercial and domestic RMI markets are less strong in 2010. The market is still difficult, with this mature and declining market still suffering from a range of additional difficulties.

In 2010, the range of products available is much wider, as fabricators have had to respond to the changed character of the market – a market in which there are fewer opportunities and where fabricators (and systems companies) have had to offer a wider range.

The supply sector remains very fragmented as it comprises vertically integrated retail glazing companies, PVC-U trade fabricators and fabricator/installers, aluminium systems fabricator/installers, bespoke glazing contractors, composite door manufacturers, commercial glazed door manufacturers, roof light manufacturers, steel window manufacturers and major joinery companies. There has been consolidation across the board with notable changes in the retail and trade fabrication sectors.

In 2010/11 this market remains fragile and with additional pressures set to come into play in this market – public sector cuts to building programmes, job cuts etc – the coming year looks likely to be another difficult year. The effects of over-capacity will reduce in the short-medium term as a result of mergers/acquisitions and business failures. The companies that remain will be leaner and will be serving a smaller but more diverse market than previously.

In the new build market prospects for 2011 and beyond are for steady improvement, though a return to the levels seen in 2007 is unlikely in the short-medium term. Prospects for the private domestic RMI market for 2011 and beyond, are for some improvement, given general economic improvement, but this remains a market under severe strain. Over the next 5 years, however, we anticipate that public sector RMI spending will reduce.

The commercial market overall is expected to continue to suffer a downturn for the short to medium term, with a return to growth overall not anticipated until at least 2014. The education and health sectors, which have helped underpin the sector in recent years, will have spending cut in the next few years. The office sector, which has been one of the severest hit by a downturn in both RMI and new build, is likely to stablise in the short–medium term but we do not anticipate any significant rise in value by 2014. The retail sector is likely to revive along with consumer spending in the medium term. The entertainment, leisure sectors and the industrial sectors are expected to remain subdued – though leisure should experience some reasonable activity from refeurbishment projects leading up to the 2012 Olympics.
