First Look On Windows

First Look On Windows

U.S. window sales recovered sharply between 2012 and 2015 due to the strong upturn in housing starts over this period and a significant jump in nonresidential building construction spending in recent quarters. The upturn in new residential sales also received a boost from an increase in the number of windows installed per new housing unit. However, the numbers of windows installed per new housing unit remains below pre-recession levels, since construction of smaller multi-family housing units are leading the recovery in residential construction. Vinyl windows are also leading the recovery in sales.

These and other industry trends are uncovered in this up-to-date First Look on Windows. This First Look also provides data on price trends, exports and imports, end-use markets, factors driving demand, and the competitive environment. Data is compiled and analyzed from 1997 to the current year and the Executive Summary provides a five year forecast.
