World door market to grow 5% through 2026
December 12, 2019 | 7:05 pm UTC

Increasing urban population across the Asia-Pacific region will have a major influence over the door market forecast over the coming years, according to a report from Global Market Insights, Inc. Asia-Pacific has about 60 percent of the world’s population, accounting for about 4.3 billion people. This includes the most populated countries in the world such as China and India. There has been a sizeable migration flow in and out of the region which has led to rapid urbanization.

According to a research by Global Market Insights, Inc. the market valuation of doors industry will exceed $165.79 billion by 2026 with following a CAGR of approximately 5.2 percent from 2019 to 2026.

India has been projected to add 416 million people in the urban areas while China will be adding 255 million by the year 2050.

The government of India had launched a flagship scheme in 2015 called Housing for All by 2022, which aims to build about 20 million homes in urban areas and 30 million houses in the rural areas by 2022. The government had also sanctioned the construction of more 3,21,567 affordable houses under the program in March 2018, representing a consistent deployment of affordable uPVC or wood-based doors.

The European Union has been aiming to preserve energy by making efforts to reduce the greenhouse gas from the building sector. The rate of innovation is required to increase in order to deliver nearly 90 percent reduction in greenhouse gas by the set deadlines. As part of these efforts, the European Union will be facilitating binding national targets and action plans for building refurbishments up to 2050.

Expenditure on renovating buildings in Europe can have a major macroeconomic effect in terms of capital investment and employment. There have been several initiatives taken across the building sector and especially on building upgradations. About 40% of the final consumption of energy takes place in houses, shops, offices and other buildings as they offer the second-largest untapped potential for energy savings. This will result in a massive increase in the building restructuring in the European region and boost the demand for doors. See
