Demand in China to grow 8.1% per year through 2017
Sales of windows and doors in China are expected to rise 8.1 percent per annum to 570 billion yuan in 2017. Gains will primarily be fueled by strong growth in both residential and nonresidential building. Product upgrades and increasing concerns about energy efficiency will also contribute to window and door demand.
Metal still dominant window material, but plastic growing
Demand for windows is projected to rise 7.8 percent per year to 375.5 billion yuan in 2017. Plastic will be the fastest rising material used in windows, with plastic window demand advancing 8.8 percent per year through 2017. Demand will benefit from the superior insulation performance and competitive costs of plastic windows, especially in residential applications. Metal will remain the dominant type of material, accounting for over 60 percent of overall window demand in 2017. Demand for metal windows will be driven by strong increases in industrial, office, and commercial building construction. Demand for doors in China is forecast to rise 8.5 percent per year to 194.5 billion yuan in 2017. Wood is the dominant material due to its ubiquitous usage in interior doors for both residential and nonresidential buildings. Demand for
wood doors is projected to increase 8.5 percent yearly to 150 billion yuan in 2017. The increasing use of wood doors made of wood/steel and wood/plastic composites, as well as product upgrades, will support further advances in overall wood door demand. Metal will retain its dominant position in the entrance door segment in both residential and nonresidential applications.
Nonresidential market to exhibit strongest advances
The nonresidential market accounted for 54 percent of window and door demand in 2012. Window and door demand in the nonresidential market is projected to grow 9.5 percent per year to 328 billion yuan in 2017, boosted by strong growth in the industrial, office, and commercial segments. Demand for windows and doors in the residential market will grow 6.2 percent per year to 242 billion yuan in 2017, due to strong construction activity in both new single-family and multifamily housing.
Northwest region to post fastest gains
China consists of distinct regional markets characterized by different climates, populations, and levels of economic development. The Central-East region, home to about 30 percent of the country’s population and 36 percent of economic output in real terms, supports the largest regional window and door market and will account for 45 percent of overall demand in China in 2017. Demand for windows and doors in the Northwest region is expected to enjoy the fastest growth, rising 9.1 percent per annum
through 2017. Gains will result from robust increases in construction activity, spurred by rapid progress in industrialization and subsequent rising personal incomes expected for this region.
