The UK’s commercial glazing market is forecast to expand by five per cent next year, according to new figures from AMA Research.
Signs of growing demand for new Grade A office space in London, as well as other major cities, is predicted to stimulate growth for commercial glaziers from 2016 onwards.
The report said: “In terms of product sectors, commercial windows is the largest sector accounting for over 50 per cent of sector sales, with curtain wall and ground floor treatments both substantial markets.
“Roof glazing accounts for the smallest share at less than 10 per cent, though rooflights are [very much] in demand for both commercial and domestic applications.”
The report also confirmed that aluminium remains “the dominant frame material in the commercial glazing market”.
AMA Research believes the commercial glazing market has grown by five per cent this year alone and with similar growth anticipated in 2016 it’s exciting times for industry leading glazing manufacturers.
