The Glazing industry comprises companies and independent contractors that are primarily engaged in the installation of glass and glass products for residential, public and commercial buildings, as well as maintenance and repairs. The industry is mainly affected by downstream demand from the building construction markets. The past five years has been a period of recovery for the industry after revenue collapsed during the worst of the economic downturn. Uncertain economic conditions shattered private investor confidence, causing the levels of construction activity in both residential and commercial markets to suffer.
Operators in the industry are mainly engaged in the installation of glass and glass products such as glass panels and mirrors (i.e. glazing work). Industry activities may involve new work, additions, tinting glass, maintenance and repairs. This industry excludes the installation of unglazed window frames.
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.
