Impact of changes on market structures.The market for residential doors is a relatively mature market reliant on the new housebuilding and home improvement sectors. Prior to the recession, the market for residential doors had been in moderate decline as over supply and downward pressure on prices resulted in downward trend in market value.

The experience 2010-13 has been for a measure of stability returning to the market but with increasing pressures on manufacturers/suppliers margins with market value estimated at £607m in 2013. The lack of significant sustained growth in housing completions has placed restraints on value growth, as has the relatively steady RMI market which has around £22.3-22.6bn 2010-12.

Into 2013 the market has been described as steady but with some signs of improvement into Q2-3 indicating that moderate value growth for 2013 is achievable. Value growth has been underpinned by legislation and standards requiring improved security, thermal and fire performance ratings leading to the increased specification of higher value products. In addition, the trend for maximising natural light has resulted in increased glazing used for entrance and patio doors but also internal doors – especially where used as room dividers.

Internal doors dominate the mix in value terms in 2013 with estimated 60% value share followed by entrance doors with 28% and patio doors with 12%. This mix has remained relatively steady since 2010 and reflects the relatively static nature of the market since 2010.

Replacements dominate the mix with private sector home improvements and social housing replacements estimated to account for combined value share of 67% in 2013, representing an increase of 5% on 2007 figures. A key factor in the dominance of the replacement market is the price differentials between the new build and the replacement sectors with bulk purchase for new build driving down the average price of products. In addition, the social housing sector is often obliged to use competitive tendering process in order to obtain “best value” for door products used in both new build and replacements.

Future prospects are for steady underlying growth to 2017 when the market is expected to reach around £726m. Factors likely to have a positive impact on volume and value growth include recovery in housebuilding completions, recovery in the house moving market, trend for higher value replacements, etc. All sectors of the residential door market are likely to benefit from the continuation of the current trend for maximising daylight which is likely to promote increase in the volume of glazed products specified for all three product categories.
