New Housing & Demand for High-End Exterior Doors Fuel Growth in
US Door Market

Market growth will be driven by continued strength in new housing
activity and expanding commercial building construction spending;
increased demand for high-end, high-performance products with enhanced
durability and energy efficiency; and rising sales of custom, more
aesthetically pleasing doors sold at higher price points.

Fiberglass Fuels Robust Gains for Plastic Doors

Fiberglass doors will continue to gain share as builders and homeowners
increasingly recognize the material's benefits - including its superior
durability, low maintenance, and good aesthetics. A bright outlook is
also anticipated for vinyl doors, which will continue to penetrate the
patio door segment due to their low cost and energy efficiency.
Nonetheless, metal doors will retain the leading share of overall sales
due to their dominance in the commercial market, as well as their top
position in residential segments such as entry and garage doors.

New Housing Activity Spurs Stronger Growth for Interior, Entry,
Garage, & Other New Residential Doors

The best opportunities are forecast for the new residential market,
supported by continued gains in housing completions. In addition,
builders will continue specifying high-value doors with good aesthetics
(including wood garage doors or fiberglass entry types with specialty
glazing) to attract buyers.

Healthy growth in construction spending for office, retail, lodging, and
institutional structures will bolster sales of commercial doors through
2021, including automated types that improve the flow of foot traffic
and adhere to universal design principles. In addition, building owners
are increasingly investing in high-performance doors to improve energy
efficiency and achieve green building certifications such as LEED.

Product Launches Target Indoor/Outdoor Living Trends

Leading door manufacturers are launching new products to take advantage
of growth opportunities driven by popular design trends. The rising
popularity of transitional indoor-outdoor living spaces and modern
designs, for instance, has spurred several suppliers to launch series of
multipanel patio doors that provide larger openings and improve access
to natural light.
