Industry performance was initially constrained by weak recovery in residential construction activity, followed by weakening demand from the commercial and industrial construction markets in the latter half of the period. Nonetheless, revitalized residential construction activity since 2013, coupled with continued new product development and branding, has helped domestic metal door makers boost sales during the second half of the period. Furthermore, input prices have generally trended downward since 2013, helping boost profit margins. Over the next five years, IBISWorld expects the industry to benefit from accelerating construction activity in the residential and nonresidential sectors despite rising external competition.
