Vendors are promoting multiple-glazed doors and multi-pane glazing windows to decrease heat loss and maintain thermal efficiency in buildings
As housing buildings in Europe are responsible for up to 24% of greenhouse gas emissions and consume over 41% of primary electricity usage, countries in the continent are working toward developing zero-energy buildings by incorporating green construction methods. The focus is to reduce the energy consumption of buildings. The integration of energy-efficient windows and doors at the design stage is the most significant opportunity to induce positive changes whose benefits can last for decades. Currently, the Europe doors and windows market is witnessing a high demand for multiple-glazed doors, which promise high thermal efficiency by eliminating heat loss through windows and doors of the building. Also, vendors are promoting multi-pane glazing windows as a means to reduce the total energy consumption by decreasing heat loss, thereby sustaining the thermal efficiency of buildings.
Further, the use of uPVC and aluminum frames and panels in windows and doors has grown in the commercial sector, which is offering new opportunities to the Europe doors and windows market. In recent years, the consumer demand has shifted from standard windows and doors to innovative ones. Vendors are including high-efficiency windows and doors in their portfolio, which enable consumers to improve the thermal efficiency in their dwellings, thereby saving on energy expenses. The Europe doors and windows market is expected to reach around $83 billion, growing at a CAGR of 5% during 2018−2024.
Automated and remote-controlled windows and doors, which sense weather changes are a major innovation in the market
With an increase in the usage of loose building envelopes, glass walls, and façade, the incorporation of modular technology is helping the Europe doors and windows market significantly. Innovative windows and doors provide multiple benefits such as noise reduction, thermal insulation, one-way mirroring, electromagnetic shielding, and enhanced aesthetic appeal. The growing demand for glass façade and curtain walls is likely to increase opportunities for vendors to diversify their product portfolio. Vendors are also including photovoltaic glass instead of plain tinted glass.
The introduction of automated and remote-controlled windows and doors, which sense weather changes and close window panels, skylight, and roof windows automatically is a major innovation witnessed in the Europe doors and windows market. Further, the use of sensors to measure solar radiations, manipulate window blinds, and identify human presence is likely to increase market opportunities for vendors in the market.
This market research report includes a detailed segmentation of the market by type, by material, by end-user, and by countries.
Europe Doors and Windows Market: Product Types
The demand for manufacturing material depends on economic conditions and traditional architectural requirements
The Europe doors and windows market by product types can broadly be categorized into doors and windows segments. Although plastic is the favored material for manufacturing windows, wood and hardened uPVC remain a preferred choice for internal doors in Western and Northern Europe. The doors and windows market in Europe is witnessing innovation, and the demand for manufacturing materials varies across the continent, depending on economic conditions and traditional architectural requirements. Further, the market size of metal doors is likely to increase due to innovation in designs and growth in the construction of residential and commercial buildings. In addition, the window segment can go a long way in energy conservation as vendors can integrate photovoltaic functionalities in their offerings to decrease carbon footprints in the environment.
Europe Doors and Windows Market: Material Types
uPVC material is gaining popularity due to its high energy efficiency
Metal, plastic, and wood are the primary materials that are used in the manufacturing of windows and doors in Europe. Plastic has occupied around half of the market share, followed by wood and metal. Plastic, fiberglass doors, and uPVC materials are in high demand in Europe due to low-cost installation, durability, minimal discoloration, termite resistant, recyclability, and high-energy efficiency. uPVC windows and doors continue to gain traction in the market due to advancements in their thermoplastic properties.
The demand for wooden windows and doors has been high in Western Europe and Nordic countries. In terms of revenue, the Europe doors and windows market by wood is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.2% by 2024. Based on the metal type, aluminum is the most preferred choice due to its high cycling rate. The demand for metal doors and metal windows is relatively high in southern Italy and Spain.
Europe Doors and Windows Market: End-users
The incorporation of thermal efficiency codes in commercial buildings is expected to increase the application of technologically advanced windows and doors
In terms of end-user application, the Europe doors and windows market is categorized into residential and commercial sectors. The emergence of several corporates and industrial buildings has led to the substantial growth of the Europe doors and windows market. The incorporation of thermal efficiency codes in commercial buildings is expected to increase the application of technologically advanced windows and doors in the building architecture. The use of these advanced innovative products provide two significant benefits – they offer structural strength to the outer layer of the building, and they help to decrease electricity expenditures by minimizing heat losses. Further, the introduction of photovoltaic functionality will enable commercial buildings to reduce carbon footprint significantly.
Europe Doors and Windows Market by Countries
Social housing projects grew by over 12% by the end of 2018, thereby increasing the demand for doors and windows in the UK
Germany is the largest market for windows and doors in Europe, growing at a CAGR of close to 6%. The growth in construction activities, the rise in disposable incomes, and the high public spend on infrastructure are driving the demand for windows and doors. Germany is followed by the UK as the second largest market. The social housing projects grew by over 12% by the end of 2018, thereby increasing the demand for windows and doors in the UK.
