Glass & Glazing Contractors in the US
The Glass and Glazing Contractors industry has barely recovered from the recession, which brought both residential and commercial construction to a halt and constrained demand for industry services. Nevertheless, growth is expected to accelerate in 2015 and in the next five years as construction activity improves, particularly in the nonresidential market. Future challenges include high compeititon and growing environmental concerns about the use of glass in buildings, though these are unlikely to offset the overall growth anticipated through 2020.
Companies in this industry select, cut and install glass panels for large windows, glass doors, skylights, curtain walls and sunroom additions in all types of buildings; they also install window panes. The glasswork performed includes new work, additions, alterations, maintenance and repairs. This industry does not install, tint or repair automotive glass and it does not install prefabricated window units.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
