Report Summary

Having peaked in 2008, the UK market for industrial and commercial doors has experienced a more difficult period in 2009-12 but has since stabilised and shown some recovery in 2013/14. The overall performance in 2013/14 has been underpinned by a combination of a recovery in construction activity in the industrial/warehousing sector, together with a general recovery in the economy and a growing switch to online sales and distribution of goods.

Legislative changes have also had a significant impact on the sector in recent years. For example, in terms of replacement and refurbishment, the Fire Safety regulations and the Corporate Manslaughter Bill helped to influence investment in replacement and refurbishment doors and shutters during the downturn, and The Equality Act 2010 (formerly the Disability Discrimination Act) has helped drive growth in demand for retrofit and replacement of existing access areas with power-assisted and automatic doors and door controls.

The personnel doors sector - incorporating timber doors, hinged steel doors; aluminium framed manual entrance doors and automated pedestrian doors. In value terms, automated pedestrian doors represents the largest single sub-sector, although the hinged door sector with timber hinged and steel hinged sectors combined represent the largest sub-sector by type. Timber doors are largely used internally, with external usage continuing to decline in favour of steel and aluminium and other materials such as PVCu, which offer greater durability and lower maintenance.

The 'industrial' doors sector covers sectional overhead doors, high-speed doors, roller shutters, sliding & folding doors and flexible doors, and in 2014 accounted for some 43% of the total market for commercial and industrial doors and shutters. High-speed doors represent the largest and the highest added value sub-sector with sectional overhead doors the second largest sub-sector, followed closely by rolling doors and shutters/grilles. High-speed doors have increased their share of the market as building owners have become more conscious of the need to rapidly open and close doors for heat/cooling conservation and for security purposes.

Timber doors are supplied primarily by UK specialist timber door manufacturers and joinery companies, and the automated pedestrian doors sector is dominated by international suppliers. The supply of commercial and industrial doors and shutters remains a very fragmented sector, with the larger suppliers supplying major construction companies and RMI contractors, and the smaller suppliers focusing on local and specialist sectors, as well as RMI and servicing.

The outlook is for sustained recovery in both the commercial and industrial door markets with forecasts of around 3% growth in 2015 and further steady modest annual growth of 3-4% through to 2019 to reach a similar value to the peak level reached in 2008.
