Glass & Glazing Contractors in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Glass & Glazing Contractors in the US

Over the five years to 2018, the Glass and Glazing Contractors industry has performed well, as a result of extensive economic improvements. Economic growth in the US has stimulated increased demand from key markets for the industry, specifically residential and nonresidential construction. Construction activity increased demand for glass and glazing contractor services from key markets, as glass windows and structures are used as a key component in construction projects. Roughly two-thirds of industry revenue is derived from work on office space and commercial and institutional buildings, whether new or under renovation, with the remainder derived from work in the housing market. Over the five years to 2023, the industry is projected to continue expanding, albeit at a slower pace. With the total value of construction projected to surpass its prerecessionary levels, the rapid growth industry operators experienced during the prior period will be harder to maintain.

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.
