NORTH AMERICA DOORS AND WINDOWS MARKET SEGMENTATION
This research report includes a detailed segmentation by
INSIGHTS BY PRODUCT
Wood and plastic are the preferred materials for internal doors in North America, increasing their market shares. Hardwood and metals are majorly used for exterior doors. The rise in reconstruction and renovation activities in the region is expected to influence the doors and windows market growth. In terms of revenue, the residential segment contributed 75% of the North American doors market by end-user in 2020. The increase in apartment buildings and gated communities have helped wooden to gain traction over metal. However, the growing concern over wood used as raw material and advances in plastic and aluminum manufacturing is likely to decline the market share by 2030. The metal segment is likely to gain market share due to increased demand from commercial and non-residential sectors, innovations in design and manufacturing, and public building projects. Advances in uPVC and thermoplastics are expected to accelerate the demand for plastic.
Windows are expected to grow significantly with the rise in new construction and home renovation activities. The replacement demand largely consists of vinyl and glass. Homeowners in the region prefer to install windows, which are energy efficient with high durability and low maintenance. Styling is also becoming one of the major concerns for homeowners while replacing windows. The US market is growing owing to the construction of non-residential buildings. These buildings mostly use windows, which increase energy efficiency.
INSIGHTS BY TYPES
Interior doors and windows accounted for over 13% and 11% shares in revenue and unit shipments, respectively, in 2020. The increasing popularity of home improvement projects is one of the major factors accelerating the market's growth. While the US is one of the largest markets for interior doors and windows, the rise in disposable incomes and increased home renovation projects are likely to aid the market's growth. In the US, the Midwest region witnessed a high increase in single-family houses, majorly in Chicago, benefiting the interior door manufacturers in the region.
In terms of revenue, exterior doors and windows contributed 91% share of the US doors and windows market in 2020. The demand for exterior windows and doors is proportional to new construction activities; however, exterior windows have a high share in replacement installations. The increasing demand for aesthetic designs in the US and Canada for exterior doors is likely to increase the manufacturers' market opportunities in the region. The increased focus on durability and energy efficiency is expected to influence the market during the forecast period.
INSIGHTS BY MATERIAL
Based on material, the plastic segment led the major North America doors and windows market share of over 43%, followed by metal with over 32%, and wood by 20% in 2020. The housing sector is likely to witness several renovation projects, and the consumer sentiment is skewed toward quality and affordable options, making plastic a preferred material choice. With the housing sector's growth and subsequent demand for housing materials, plastic materials continue to observe high adoption. Plastic doors and windows continue to gain traction due to innovations in material and manufacturing techniques. uPVC is commonly used as an effective replacement material for wood.
Aluminum and steel are witnessing a high preference for doors and windows manufacturing and have a high recycling rate. Aluminum remains the favorable material for commercial spaces, especially among builders and contractors, to install large multi-glazed windows and full-glass panel doors. The market has witnessed high demand for fiberglass doors, uPVC windows, and engineered wood internal doors.
INSIGHTS BY END-USER
Renovation and retrofitting activities in residential structures are expected to drive doors and windows adoption in North America. New government-funded housing projects, especially due to the rising immigrant population, are currently operated by new residential construction demand. Government-funded projects are focused on high-cost efficiency, thus increasing the demand for plastic windows and doors. A significant shift toward energy-efficient fenestration products in new housing and renovation sectors is also aiding the market growth. uPVC materials are finding increasing application in energy-efficient residential buildings.
Non-residential buildings include corporate offices, industrial facilities, institutional buildings, warehouses, and mercantile spaces responsible for the highest power consumption. Vendors are focusing on developing advanced windows and doors that offer high thermal insulation and minimize heat loss. Manufacturers are making optimum use of renewable sources to build zero-energy buildings. Since 2010, the number of zero-energy buildings across North America has increased ten-fold and covered 80 million square feet of the non-residential building sector. Hence, the growth in zero-energy infrastructure is likely to aid in developing the non-residential doors and windows market.
INSIGHTS BY INSTALLATION
In North America, rapid infrastructural development and construction projects are primarily driving the demand for doors and windows in new constructions. Investments in the standardization of IT infrastructure and product innovations also drive the market for new construction. The need to upgrade the traditional door's thermal efficiency and functional operations boosts the demand for replacement doors and windows. The replacement demand is currently driving the demand for sliding and insulated profiles, largely due to their enhanced insulating properties, easier operations, and efficient space use.
INSIGHTS BY OPERATION
Manual doors are gaining traction in developed economies as they allow better and regulated control of the airflow. They are also used in spaces where doors need to be kept open to handle a heavy footfall for a small duration, such as movie theaters and schools. They are widely used in residential buildings and small businesses for two major factors – low price and easy regulation of airflow, thereby maintaining HVAC temperatures in building premises. Low maintenance and operational costs are supporting the growth of the manual segment.
Automatic doors and windows operate using sensors, and hence they observe high adoption in shopping malls, airports, and hospitals. They help accommodate high pedestrian traffic in busy places and intelligently maintain sunlight and thermal coefficients in buildings. The installation of automatic doors in clean rooms ensures restraint against temperature, humidity, and pressure. They are designed to provide hygiene maintenance; therefore, the pandemic outbreak, such as COVID-19, has positively influenced market growth.
