The Metal Door and Window Manufacturing industry is subject to intense competition from substitute products made from wood and PVCu. The proportion of doors and windows made from metal in the United Kingdom has declined over the past decade. In 2015-16 the industry is estimated to generate revenue of £2.1 billion, up by 1.7% on the previous year due to higher total building investment and more favourable lending conditions. The Help to Buy scheme has been particularly important in this regard, stimulating demand for residential housing construction.
