Multiple Factors Drive Increasing Window and Door Demand in China

Sales of windows and doors in China are expected to rise 8.1% per year to ¥570 billion (~ $5.5 million) in 2017, according to a recent report from The Freedonia Group Inc. 

“Advances will primarily be driven by strong increases in both residential and nonresidential building,” said Toni Niu, analyst. Product upgrades and increasing concerns about energy efficiency will also contribute to window and door demand. These and other trends are presented in the report.

Demand for windows is projected to grow 7.8% per year to ¥375.5 billion (~ $3.6 million) in 2017. Plastic will be the fastest growing material used in windows, with plastic window demand advancing 8.8% per year through 2017. Demand will reportedly benefit from the superior insulation performance and competitive costs of plastic windows, especially in residential applications. Metal is expected to remain the dominant type of material, accounting for over 60% 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 projected to rise 8.5% per year to ¥194.5 billion (~ $1.8 million) in 2017. Wood is the dominant material due to its ubiquitous use in interior doors for both residential and nonresidential buildings. Demand for wood doors is projected to grow 8.5% annually to ¥150 billion (~ $1.4 million) in 2017. The increasing use of wood doors made of wood/steel and wood/plastic composites, as well as product upgrades, is expected to 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.
