    Commercial Glazing Market Report
    forecasts strong growth for aluminium products

    arrow Back to news 19th January 2016

    The 2015-2019 Commercial Glazing Market Report indicates the prospects for growth in the commercial aluminium market over the next four-to-five years are very positive.

    According to the ninth edition of this particular Commercial Glazing Market Report, carried out by AMA Research, the next few years spell good news for aluminium glazing suppliers and the construction industry as a whole.


    Following a period of decline between 2008 and 2011 thanks to the recession, significant growth in 2014 for commercial glazing appears to have been sustained and improved upon in 2015.


    A key influencer in this growth has been increased activity in the office construction sector, as well as the education sector which is also expected to see a host of valuable new projects in the coming months due to the introduction of the Priority Schools Building Programme (PSBP), which aims to deliver £2.5bn worth of new schools by 2017.


    In H2 2015, there were signs of growing demand for new Grade A office space in London and other leading cities such as Birmingham and Leeds, which the report believes will stimulate further demand for commercial windows and curtain walling this year onwards.


    In the commercial glazing market, aluminium remains the dominant frame material; ahead of timber, PVCu, steel and composites, which have smaller market shares.


    Justin Seldis, managing director, Sunsquare, believes it’s a very positive outlook for aluminium products in the commercial sector but that more work can be done to promote the benefits in residential, mainstream housing.


    “There’s no doubt that aluminium has long been a popular material in the commercial glazing market, and we’re very keen to spread the word of the versatility of aluminium glazing in the residential sector too.


    “Our industry-leading, BSI Kitemarked roof windows can surpass the safety, durability and energy performance requirements of one of the world’s leading quality marks, giving self-builders, architects and contractors complete confidence that our glazing offers the same benefits for homes as it does for commercial properties.


    “We’re extremely excited about the possibilities for our entire product range in 2016.”
