Overall trends in glazing industry – materials, sectors etc.
Impact of changes on market structures.The windows and doors fabrication market has been in steady decline over the last decade, but has fallen by around 30% since 2007. At trade prices, the market in the UK was worth around £1.94 billion in 2013. Key defining factors in this market in 2013 are: market maturity (in particular for the domestic replacement market), fragmentation, competition, cost-management, building legislation, ‘green’ building, austerity and diversification.
The development of the economy is of central importance to the glazing sector, which has been severely impacted by the recession. Issues associated with the effects of the financial crisis, such as the continuing restrictions in credit, the slump in housebuilding and the poor house moving market, have also impacted this industry negatively.
There is significant over-capacity in the industry resulting in an intensely competitive market, especially in the PVC-U sector - prices and margins remain under pressure as companies compete for business.
In 2013, the range of products available continues to broaden, as fabricators have had to respond to the changed character of the market – a market in which there are fewer opportunities and where fabricators (and systems companies) have had to offer a wider range.
The supply structure remains very fragmented, comprising of vertically integrated retail glazing companies, PVC-U trade fabricators and fabricator/installers, aluminium systems fabricator/installers, bespoke glazing contractors, composite door manufacturers, commercial glazed door manufacturers, roof light manufacturers, steel window manufacturers and major joinery companies.
Closures and acquisitions/mergers continue to be a striking feature of the market in 2012/13 – across all segments within the industry.
There are some bright spots in the market. Notably, the composite door sector continues to develop market share. Some of the key companies in this market are Britdoors Group, a new entrant to the market in 2012, Door Stop International, IG Doors and Rockdoor.
In 2013, the prospects for this industry in the immediate term remain relatively pessimistic and the fragility of the economy remains a significant factor. However, early 2013 has seen some tentative positive signs with Q1 GDP at 0.3% growth, with some encouraging signs in the housebuilding sector – but housemoving and household spending levels are flat, and the commercial construction market shows little sign of any significant growth in the short-medium term Gradual improvement in the medium term is anticipated, given sustained improvement in the economy, though this is dependent on the speed and timing of recovery.
It seems likely that capacity in the window replacement market will continue to reduce along with demand, and that the already expected consolidation of this market will become more rapid as a result of current circumstances. Further mergers and acquisitions are forecast across this industry as it continues to adjust to market conditions. Large corporate groups, like Epwin, are likely to continue to expand through acquisition.
The market will continue to develop in response to legislation and building regulations, which will continue to focus on ‘green’ building materials, thermal efficiency etc.
