The plastic windows and doors segment is likely to dominate the European windows and doors market

Plastic doors and windows accounted for a share of about 50% and dominated the European windows and doors market in 2018. The overall cost of installing plastic windows and doors is comparatively more cost-effective than wooden or metal materials; uPVC is increasingly being used as the main material for low-cost, durable, and high-quality windows and doors. The use of plastic is relatively higher in windows than doors. Due to innovations in the material and manufacturing techniques, plastic windows and doors continue to gain traction due to advancements in their thermoplastic properties.

Durability, high-noise reduction, high-thermal efficiency, suitability for seaside locations, minimal discoloration, low maintenance, multipoint security features, termite resistant, and recyclability are the major benefits of plastic windows and doors. Plastic windows, generally, have a high ability to ward off a thermal loss as they can be sealed tightly and allow two or three times glazing at economical prices. Central European countries have a high preference for uPVC doors. The high level of energy efficiency provided by uPVC doors and windows is an important factor for boosting the demand for plastic windows and doors during the forecast period.
