The total PVC window and door market volume across the 32 countries is huge, export opportunities are there now and some are opening up. PVC windows are proving attractive to consumers in developing markets and energy efficient windows are gaining in importance. Crucially at this time the medium and long term prospects for the industry in some countries in Europe, Turkey, Russia and beyond is more favourable than for some time.
The markets for PVC profile, windows and doors across Europe have been changing - some have been in the doldrums and others have declined as a result of the economic difficulties of the past few years brought about by the global recession and difficulties with the Euro. Yet some markets have grown. Some companies have looked outside their domestic markets at the emerging markets found outside of the 32 countries covered in the report.
Section 1 concentrates on PVC window and door profile using the term ‘window profile’ as shorthand to describe PVC rigid profile used for windows, doors and conservatories (including similar structures such as porches and verandas). Section 2 concentrates on manufactured (fabricated) window and door units, with unit being shorthand for a single window or door. The term ‘market’ is the shorthand for the demand within a country for windows and doors and is defined as production of windows and doors less exports plus imports.
