Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "The PVC Window Door & Conservatory Industry Market & Forecasts to 2015" report to their offering.
This window products industry forecast report for the UK and Republic of Ireland is directed at volumes and values for the PVC-U window, door and conservatory markets covering the years to 2015.
Importantly, the forecast uses the latest economic and construction industry forecasts to project volumes and values by sector and product line into 2015.
The report concentrates on the demand for PVC-U window products in the UK over the period 2008 to 2015 specifically:
- PVC-U window profile.
- PVC-U windows.
- Doors - PVC panel, composite, patio, bifold and French
- PVC-U conservatories.
Unlike some other industry reports all our reports and forecasts embrace non housing (commercial) applications together with housing improvement and new building.
To ensure the forecast is right up to date we have incorporated the current PVC-U window industry profile trends as reflected in The PVC-U Window Profile in the UK Summary Quarterly Profile Tracker from D&G Consulting.
The forecast is based on independently researched facts to establish volumes and values by product line and in total. We have set out to provide the best possible forecast for the industry by breaking it down into small elements (the building block approach) providing the best chance of a good quality forecast. Within the body of the report are clearly set out the details and assumptions that form the basis of our forecasting model.
We have also sought figures from companies and authorities in the industry. Much of the information has been provided to us in detail and on a confidential basis such that we are able to use it to compile trends and build up a model.
The window industry has been hit hard by the downturn in the economies of the UK and Ireland. Since the summer construction industry and economic forecasts for the period to 2015 have taken a downturn resulting in domestic demand being severely constrained by the economic climate. This has impacted upon the window industries where much of the volume is of a discretionary nature so improvements to property are being put back until conditions look brighter. But, we believe there are important pockets of opportunities.
