Mixed prospects: new Ceresana study on the European market for windows and doors
The corona pandemic and the respective global containment measures are causing massive economic disruption, which is also damaging the supposedly solid construction industry.
Economic Aid and Climate Protection
The markets for windows and doors were already strongly influenced by national support programs to increase energy efficiency. Buildings account for around 40% of total energy consumption in Europe, the majority of which is used for heating and hot water. The insulation of walls or roofs is often discussed as a means to improve energy efficiency; however, even the best insulation is of little use when thermal bridges are ignored. Windows and doors can therefore make an important contribution to energy saving, for example by integrating special insulation cores directly into the window profile.
Up-to-date Market Information
This new study by Ceresana provides figures on demand, production, import and export, as well as revenues. In the case of windows, the study focuses on quantity, material, and area of application (new construction or renovation), but not on window fittings or glazing. The number of window frames is therefore decisive with regard to windows. The figures for the door market include interior and exterior doors, but no garage doors, garden doors, sliding doors etc. The door panel, door frame, and door threshold are not counted separately but considered to be a single door unit.
The Study in Brief:
Chapter 1 divides the European demand for windows and doors into different materials and the segments new construction and renovation, while revenues are split into the two categories windows and doors.
Chapter 2 offers figures for 23 individual countries about demand for and the production of windows and doors split by materials, about revenues, and about import and export.
Chapter 3 contains useful company profiles of the most important manufacturers of windows and doors.
