Research and Markets: United Kingdom Domestic Replacement Door and Window Market Report 2015

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/h76dsv/domestic) has announced the addition of the "Domestic Replacement Door and Window Market Report - UK 2012-2016 Analysis" report to their offering.

The UK market for replacement domestic doors and windows is large, but mature. Volumes have been in steady underlying decline, but in 2014 the market returned to growth. By value, the market is estimated to have grown by as much as 9% at retail selling prices in 2014. This growth partly reflects the release of pent-up demand due to rising consumer confidence and an improving housing market.

The dominant position of PVC-u, especially in the windows and patio door sector over the past few decades, is undeniable with the PVC-u dominated direct sell route to market particularly strong in these product sectors. Aluminium and timber are also important frame materials for doors and windows - though aluminium is largely restricted to specific applications or products. Composite doors have gained significant market share and have grown rapidly in popularity in recent years.

Sustainability remains a core theme in this as in other construction markets. New product developments in this market include a wider range of colours for doors and window frames than previously. Some major restructuring has been seen in this sector in the last 2 years, with further rationalisation anticipated at all levels of the supply chain. In particular, the composite door sector has seen significant change in terms of acquisitions and companies exiting the market 2013/14.

Our forecast for the development of the door and window replacement market for 2015 is for further good growth overall in the region of 5%, given continued growth in the general economy, strong consumer confidence and a good housing market. For the longer term, our forecasts are for steady recovery of around 2-3% growth, reflecting market maturity and a steadily rising economy. We anticipate that certainly in the short term, the market will be primarily driven by demand from the private rather than public sector, because of the impact of cuts in government spending for the forecast period.

New niche sectors continue to offer opportunities - bifold doors have been a recent example as homeowners look to open up access to their garden areas with large, flexible glazed areas. In the longer term, the UK replacement door and window market is likely to see further consolidation at all levels.
