In the wake of the subprime mortgage crisis and subsequent recession, building activity slowed to a crawl, especially residential building activity. This caused the Metal Door Manufacturing's industry revenue to dip by double digits in 2009, and to continue declining, albeit more slowly, through 2012. Subsequent revenue gains have been insufficient for full recovery. However, the industry is expected to fully recover over the next five years, fueled by rising levels of residential and nonresidential construction activity. Nevertheless, projected hikes in the price of key metal inputs (aluminum and steel) will curb further profit growth in the industry.
This industry manufactures metal doors and door frames. Industry products are primarily made of aluminum and steel and are used in a variety of residential and nonresidential applications, including fire doors and safety exits. This industry does not manufacture doors with a wood core.
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.
