GLOBAL DOOR CLOSER MARKET : SEGMENTATION
This market research report includes a detailed segmentation of the global door closers market by
- Product type
- Pressure type
GLOBAL DOOR CLOSER MARKET: PRODUCT TYPE
The mechanical Segment is Expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% During the Forecast Period
The global door closer market by product types comprises mechanical and electromechanical. The mechanical segment is gaining popularity and is expected growing at a CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period. Backcheck, closing speed, closing delay, and latching action are the four main functions of mechanical doors.They ensure smooth passage of individuals and can effectively retain heat inside premises, thereby reducing dependency on air conditioners. North America accounted for the largest market for mechanical doors in 2018.
Electromechanical operators incorporate door closing technology with electrohydraulic power. Some of the major types of electromechanical operators include regenerative power operators, low-energy electromechanical operators, and low-energy electro-hydraulic operators. These electronic operators and control systems are highly efficient and comply with standard building regulations. They follow the Americans Disability Act (ADA) and the Equalities Act-disability legislation, which ensure easy access for individuals with disability to public and commercial places and state and local government buildings. Electromechanical operators improve convenience as they aid in opening and closing of the doors. The closing speed of doors can be regulated, and doors can protect the spreading of fire and smoke. Electromechanical doors are in high demand in the global door closer market; they are primarily used in hotels, office buildings, and other commercial and retail stores.
GLOBAL DOOR CLOSER MARKET: PRESSURE TYPE
Pneumatic closers are expected to witness high demand given their steadiness and cost-effectiveness
The global door closer market by pressure type is broadly classified into hydraulic and pneumatic segments. Although the hydraulic door closer market is dominating, the market for pneumatic door closer is expected to grow at a faster CAGR than hydraulic closers during the forecast period. The hydraulic segment captured more than half of the global door closer market in 2018. Hydraulic closers are an ideal choice in the commercial sector. They come with a controllable latch system, which is used as a security lock to close the doors. Hydraulic closers generally use a special hydraulic fluid or a lightweight oil. Since the liquid cannot be compressed, it contains a powerful spring to protect against the powerful wind and allow smooth operations of heavy doors. They also provide a uniform closing speed, thereby preventing the bouncing of the door just before it latches. North America dominated the hydraulic door closer market with market share of 39% in 2018.
Pneumatic doors are cost-effective and are widely used to control the screen or storm door outside the house. However, heavier models are used in jalousie storm doors as well as in interior doors of standard weight. These are mainly used in residential places due to their cost advantages and easy installation. Rising consumer awareness toward safety and security, growing number of innovative and high-quality products, and increasing disposable incomes are likely to aid the growth of pneumatic door closer in the emerging markets of APAC, MEA, and Latin America.
GLOBAL DOOR CLOSER MARKET: OPERATION TYPE
The overhead door closer segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 4% during the forecast period
The global door closer market by operation types is classified into overhead, floor spring, and integrated. All these types can be installed on aluminum, wooden, or glass doors. They are versatile and offer high durability. The overhead door closers segment dominates the market due to the wide usage in the commercial sector. Further, they are classified into three variants - regular arm, top jam, and parallel arm.
Floor spring door closers are widely used in glass doors with patch fitting. They can also be installed on aluminum, wooden, and glass doors. They are versatile and highly durable. Floor spring closers have gained traction due to rapid expansion of commercial activities such as corporate offices, business parks, and retail stores in the emerging markets of China, India, Singapore, Indonesia, the UAE, and Saudi Arabia.
GLOBAL DOOR CLOSER MARKET: END-USER
