A clearer outlook
Having made it through the recession, glass and glazing contractors now have a recovery to look forward to. Both the residential and nonresidential building markets are forecast to grow over the coming years, and demand for glass and glazing services will consequently follow. Demand from institutional buildings like hospitals and educational facilities will continue to be solid, while the renewed demand from the residential sector will significantly benefit the industry's many small-contractors, which were hard-hit by the housing slump.
