The Aluminium Doors and Window Manufacturing industry has had a rickety ride over the past five years. Industry revenue is expected to increase a slightly by an annualised 0.4% over the five years through 2012-13 to reach $4.6 billion. Aggressive price discounting coupled with muted demand conditions weakened industry revenue. The collapse of the housing market and the start of the global financial crisis effectively crippled demand from construction markets, the industry's primary sources of revenue. Consumer and business confidence plummeted, and access to credit was extremely difficult to secure.
The industry consists of firms that manufacture architectural aluminium products such as doors, railings, gates, ornamental partitions, window frames, aluminium-framed windows, doors and shower screens.
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.
