Windows and Doors Market Report 2001
Key Note Publications Ltd, January 2001
This report analyses the UK windows and doors market in terms of the main materials - unplasticised polyvinyl chloride (Pvc-u), wood, aluminium and steel. In 2001, the total market is estimated to be worth £1.78bn at manufacturers' selling prices (msp).
The report also provides background statistics for the construction industry, which in 2000 had an output value of £69.53bn. Although housebuilding is the main sector for windows and doors, the commercial sector is also important for its offices construction and refurbishment work.
The use of Pvc-u continues to increase as this material penetrates more into the new build market. Pvc-u is the most popular material in the replacement windows and doors market, having won market share from aluminium - the early double-glazing material. The wood sector of the market continues to decline, although timber windows are now available with long-life guarantees, which are possible with modern treatment processes.
An analysis is given of the geographical distribution of the UK housing market. Regarding the structure of the UK windows and doors industry, there have been some changes: Anglian and Epwin have been delisted from the Stock Market and are now in private hands. Profiles of leading companies are given in this report, including Heywood Williams Group PLC, Anglian Group PLC, Bowater Windows Ltd, Jeld-Wen UK Ltd and Everest Ltd (part of Latium Group).
An analysis of buying behaviour shows a slight decline in both the penetration of replacement windows and doors, and a decline in the number of people purchasing these products in the past 12 months.
The windows and doors market is forecast to grow by 10.4% between 2002 and 2006.
