The Aluminium Door and Window Manufacturing industry has faced a challenging trading environment since the late 2000s, characterised by aggressive price discounting and subdued demand conditions. Industry revenue is projected to decline at an annualised 1.4% over the five years through 2014-15, to total $4.0 billion. Domestic demand is projected to fall by an annualised 0.8% to $4.2 billion.
The deterioration in the industry's performance over the past five years was sparked by the onset of the global financial crisis. This dampened consumer and business confidence and led to a slump in demand for architectural products in the key building markets.
Firms in this industry primarily manufacture architectural aluminium products such as doors, railings, and aluminium-framed windows, doors and shower screens (complete with glass).
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
