CLEVELAND, Aug. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Demand for metal commercial windows and doors is forecast to increase 3.7% per year, in line with the overall average, but slower than plastic. Builders and building owners continue to favor metal windows and doors for their strength, durability, and minimal maintenance. Products with the best growth outlooks include those that are easy to operate, offer improved energy efficiency, and have good aesthetics. Steel will remain the most commonly used metal to manufacture commercial doors, while aluminum will lead in the windows segment. These and other trends are presented in Commercial Windows & Doors Market in the US, 2nd Edition, a new study from The Freedonia Group, a Cleveland-based industry research firm.

While metal products continue to lead total sales, vinyl and fiberglass windows and doors are expected to see the fastest sales gains as builders and property owners increasingly recognize their aesthetic, performance, and cost benefits. In particular, fiberglass windows and doors are seeing strong sales increases, as these products can exhibit strength and durability on par with metal types.
