SBI estimates the market for windows and doors at $29.16 billion in 2004. Several factors have affected the industry. Energy efficiency, new materials and value-added products have been major influencers in the windows and doors market, along with recent strengthening of government influence over the industry (such as the introduction of new hurricane safety codes affecting the East Coast and stricter energy codes throughout the country).
Although SBI predicts a housing slowdown due to the rise in interest rates, any negative impact on the windows and doors market will be partially offset by a growing remodeling market. With that in mind, SBI estimated that the doors and window market will reach $39.05 billion by 2009.
