Doors Market

This report covers the U.S. door industry, including sections on U.S. door shipments, imports, end- use markets, factors affecting domestic demand, exports, industry cost structure, and the competitive environment. The report also profiles worldwide door manufacturers, detailing their door manufacturing operations and recent company developments. Also includes demographics of home improvement purchaser. From Specialists in Business Information.


Scope And Methodology

The SBI Market Profile on Doors is a guide to the growth- and profit-oriented opportunities in the manufacture and sale of metal and wood door products. This comprehensive database covers U.S. shipments, imports and exports, end-use markets, replacement door purchaser demographics, factors affecting domestic demand, the cost structure of metal and wood door product plants, the competitive environment, and the Canadian market situation. In addition, major North American and foreign-based manufacturers are profiled in order to uncover competitor strategies.

The total door product industry is analyzed on a dollar and unit basis in Section 1. Shipments are provided for doors and frames shipped separately, as well as for metal and wood products. Data are compiled from U.S. Department of Commerce surveys. SBI provides a comparative growth analysis in order to have the reader quickly uncover rising sales opportunities. The Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Producer Price Index of metal and wood door products was utilized to construct a picture of total door price trends.

Sections 2 and 3 further segment door product shipments by material and product, and provide data on U.S. imports. Shipments are for all domestic manufacturers, whether plants are owned by U.S.- or foreign-based companies and whether or not plants specialize (50% or more of total facility revenues) in door products. Metal door product shipments are segmented into industrial, residential, and commercial and institutional markets and further divided into aluminum and iron and steel product lines. Data on shower doors and storm doors are provided as well. Wood door shipments are segmented into panel and flush type interior and exterior wood doors. Shipments are also broken down by door facing material. Specialty wood door shipments provide information on storm doors, garage doors, patio doors, bi-fold doors, and others. Import data are derived from U.S. Customs Service records and round out the total U.S. supply. Import data is also provided by major country of origin.

Door purchases by application and end-use market are compiled from American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) and U.S. Department of Commerce data (Section 4). The AAMA provides data on entry and passage door sales by market and material. AAMA data trends also include residential patio door sales for new construction and replacement markets and by material, and storm door shipments by material. Garage door shipments by material are compiled from U.S. Department of Commerce surveys. U.S. home builder brand preferences for six types of doors are provided from the Professional Builder 1998 Brand Study. For the leading brands, preferences are provided by region, single-family home cost, total units built, and by home type. The Census of Manufacturers provides purchases of door products at mobile home, prefabricated wood building, and recreation vehicle plants. Other government data trends provide statistics on building materials dealer and home center door sales and homeowner spending on replacement doors. A separate section compiles and analyzes U.S. door product exports (Section 7). Export data is segmented by material, door type, and major country of destination.

Simmons Market Research Bureau data supply demographic snapshots of replacement door purchasers (Section 5). Demographics are also provided by spending level and whether the unit was installed by a contractor or part of a do-it-yourself project. Demographic characteristics covered include purchases by sex, age, race, marital status, household income, education and occupation, household size, children by age, homeowners versus renters, and region.

SBI investigated the factors driving demand by analyzing construction and other end-use market data (Section 6). Residential housing statistics include data on new housing completions, existing home resales, and mobile home placements. Housing starts and residential building permits further track new residential construction markets. The characteristics of newly completed U.S. housing units and existing housing units are also provided. Total homeowner remodeling and repair spending are analyzed as well. In addition, data is provided on household demographics and economic trends. Nonresidential contract awards by building type and region are also provided.

SBI supplies data on the cost structure and profitability of U.S. plants specializing (50% or more of total plant revenues) in the manufacture and sale of wood and metal door products (Section 8). U.S. Department of Commerce survey data covering these plants are supplemented with individual company sales data in order to calculated company market share. Company sales statistics are compiled as part of an exhaustive effort to provide competitive intelligence (Section 10). Annual reports, databases, and trade journals were searched for growth- and profit-oriented strategies.

The Canadian market situation is evaluated from Statistics Canada data (Section 9). Data trends include plant shipments, exports, and imports. The cost structure of Canadian wood and metal door and window plants is also provided.

Action-oriented executives are urged to use this comprehensive statis tical database and the competitor information to penetrate end-use markets, target key demographic markets, expand foreign market sales, and initiate profitable operating strategies. Executives are urged to compute their own company’s market share and compare their company’s operating ratios to the industry averages as part of this process.
