Global Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride (UPVC) Windows Market 2017-2021

About Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride (UPVC) Windows

UPVC windows are un-plasticized, as no additive is added to make the material flexible. UPVC is a thermoplastic material with rigidity and significant modulus of elasticity. Several years of R&D has made UPVC the most sophisticated substance available as a building material for doors, windows, shutters, automobile body parts, and even credit cards. It is frequently referred to as rigid PVC.

UPVC windows are used in various types of residential and light commercial spaces, from churches, schools, and office to apartment buildings and hotels. These windows are built in a similar way as that of aluminum or wood windows. However, the frame around the glass includes a chambered vinyl extrusion that is energy efficient, low maintenance, and durable.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride (UPVC) windows market to grow at a CAGR of 6.35% during the period 2017-2021.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Atrium Companies, BF Rich Windows & Doors, CGI Windows & Doors, Chelsea Building Products, Croft, Crystal Pacific Window & Door, Deceuninck N.V., Ellison Doors & Windows, ENERGI Fenestration Solutions, Euramax International, Everlast Group of Companies, Groupe Lapeyre, Hayfield Door & Windows, International Window Corporation, International Window Corporation, Internorm Fenster International GmbH, Intus Windows, Kaycan, Kolbe Windows & Doors, LG Hausys, Masco, MI Windows and Door, OKNA Windows, PGT Industries, Royal Building Products, Soft-Lite, Southern Shade Window & Door, True Home Value, Vinyltek Windows, Weather Shield Manufacturing, and Weru.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Evolution toward cellular PVC windows. Cellular PVC windows was developed as a response to customer requests for wood windows that resist rot. Cellular PVC windows are produced from PVC. Cellular PVC is different from extruded hollow vinyl as it features a foam or cell structure inside. Cellular PVC is manufactured through a different manufacturing process, where the components are solid. It can be nailed, sawn, and fabricated like wood. Window elements (jamb, brickmould, sill, and sash rails) used to produce these windows look exactly like wood windows. Cellular PVC windows are solid in construction and are stronger than extruded vinyl windows that are thinner and often lead to warping.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Growth in housing construction sector. The rising construction of residential buildings has a direct impact on the demand for UPVC windows. They are frequently adopted as an alternative to wooden and aluminum windows.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Volatility in raw material prices. UPVC uses polyvinyl chloride polymer as the base and to make the material suitable for use as a window, different additives and stabilizers are needed. These specific heat and UV stabilizer additives are an essential part of any PVC formulations designed for the manufacture of UPVC windows.
