This comprehensive study examines the US window and door industry
by material, product, market, and geographic region. Products include
windows, doors, and such other items as frames, sashes, curtain wall, storm
windows and doors, window and door screens, and security grilles. Windows
and doors designed for specific interior fixtures, such as wood cabinet doors or
metal shower stall doors, are excluded from the scope of this study. Historical
data are provided for 2003, 2008, and 2013, with forecasts for 2018 and 2023.
As used in this study, the term “sales” is synonymous with “demand” and is
equivalent to window and door production plus imports, less exports. Demand
values for windows and doors include the installed glazing. However, installed
glazing is excluded from demand values for other products, such as curtain wall
and storefront windows. Data are presented in millions of US dollars, and
residential prime window and door demand is also presented in millions of
units. The study is framed within the economic, technological, and market
environments of the window and door industry. In addition to providing a
market outlook, the study also identifies and profiles the major industry
participants and discusses key strategic competitive variables.
Information and data on the window and door industry were obtained
from a variety of primary and secondary sources. Historical data are based on
US Bureau of Census figures, including the Economic Census and Annual
Survey of Manufactures. These and supporting data were adjusted as necessary
in light of consultation with personnel of participating companies and other
industry contacts. Secondary data were obtained from government sources,
trade associations (e.g., the American Architectural Manufacturers Association
and the Window and Door Manufacturers Association), and other private
sources. Corporate information sources included annual reports, SEC Form 10-
K filings, product releases, prospectuses, and conversations with responsible
officers within the companies themselves. Various published and unpublished
estimates of the US window and door market, both historical and forecast, were
refined and adjusted into a mutually consistent pattern by the Freedonia Group
Research Department. Publications consulted included Door & Window
Manufacturer, Journal of Light Construction, and Window & Door.
Throughout this study, demand is related to various indicators for
comparative purposes and to facilitate further analysis. Tabular details may not
add to totals due to independent rounding, and calculated ratios reflect
unrounded numbers. The macroeconomic indicators used in this study were
obtained from The Freedonia Group Consensus Forecasts dated April 2014.
Because of the Bureau of Economic Analysis’ use of chain-weighted price
indexes, inflation-adjusted Gross Domestic Product components (2009 dollars)
do not necessarily add to the total.
