GLOBAL DOOR CLOSER AND EXIT DEVICES MARKET SEGMENTATION
This research report includes a detailed segmentation by
INSIGHTS BY PRODUCT
Door closers are relatively familiar products, which are finding adoption in most emerging economies. Favorable government frameworks, stringent building codes, panic and fire emergency policies, the revival of the construction and tourism sector, renovation boom in APAC countries are some of the factors that can accelerate the adoption of door closers in the next five years. In 2020, North America dominated the market and accounted for a market share of 68%. The development of integrated door closers can drive momentum during the coming years as the installation of lightweight and elegant doors is gaining traction. The availability of heavy-duty pneumatic door closers with smother operation is expected to increase the share of hydraulic doors.
INSIGHTS BY DOOR TYPE
North America was the largest market for mechanical & electromechanical door closers with a share of over 35% and 36%, respectively, in 2020. However, due to rapid infrastructure development and the rising number of construction projects, the APAC mechanical door closers market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Electromechanical doors accounted for over 38% share of the global door closer market in 2020. However, the market is expected to grow significantly as these provide convenience and ease of usage. Most electromechanical instruments assist both in opening and closing.
INSIGHTS BY PRESSURE TYPE
Hydraulic door closers dominated the market with a share of over 57% in 2020 and are expected to retain their dominance during the forecast period. Pneumatic door closers, although less popular, are expected to pose an absolute growth of over 27% during the forecast period. North America dominated the market for hydraulic door closers with a share of approx. 37% in 2020. The growth of commercial real estate is driving the demand for hydraulic door closers in the region. APAC is likely to be the fastest growing market with a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period. The rapid increase in the construction of commercial and residential facilities, especially in China and India, is expected to support the market growth.
INSIGHTS BY EXIT DEVICES
Rim exit devices are the most deployed panic bars across the globe and accounted for approx. 44% of the total share in 2020. North America and Europe dominated the segment with shares of 35% and 32%, respectively. The installation of double doors in large commercial spaces is increasing the significance of vertical rod devices. Vertical rods are standard in multi-point latching techniques alongside rim devices. Durable smart lock systems and the installation method have increased the adoption. The demand for aesthetics and architecture is driving the market for concealed vertical rods in the market. APAC is expected to generate incremental revenue of approx. $41 million in the vertical rod segment, whereas the Middle East and Africa, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period. Mortises, which accounted for over 19% in 2020, are witnessing installation in heavy-duty exit devices. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period. Although they have offered unique benefits, the requirement for a greater passage and additional cost factors limit the adoption of mullions in 2020. However, the demand for mullions can remain optimistic with the growth in double door installations across the globe.
