This report represents the 11th edition of the ‘Commercial Glazing’ market and provides a review of the wide range of commercial glazing products installed in non-residential applications to include commercial windows, curtain wall (including structural glazing), ground floor treatments and roof glazing. The market is complex, compounded by problems with product definitions and the extensive degree of ‘grey area’ between the various market sectors, making it difficult to accurately gauge absolute sizes and trends either by volume or value. Furthermore, interpretation of company performance data is difficult as while some companies specialise in a well-defined market sector, others supply the whole range of glazing systems for use in both commercial and residential applications.

Analysis is further complicated by fragmentation of the supply chain, with companies involved in extrusion, system supply, fabrication and installation but only a few offering a single source solution, and with different frame materials having their own supply chains. However, as company and industry performance is measured principally by value, AMA considers that this is the most appropriate way to attempt to evaluate the commercial glazing sector.

Following the difficult trading conditions and low margins experienced following the Referendum vote of 2016, several years of Brexit negotiations and volatile conditions in the economy the UK commercial glazing industry experienced declining growth in sales to 2019. However, the outlook for 2020 and forward is for moderate but rising increases in growth through to 2023 underpinned by conclusions to Brexit and stronger confidences looking forward to new UK construction investment.
