UK: Out Of Over 9 Million Windows Replaced Annually, 2 Million Are Now Second Time Replacements

Out of over 9 million windows replaced annually, 2 million are now second time replacements according to the UK Glazing Sector report commissioned by the Energy Saving Trust and the Energy Efficiency Partnership for Homes This is just one of the findings from the report which uncovers how the drivers behind the window market are changing fast.

Despite first time replacement saturation, the window market shows encouraging signs of refocusing, with demand for higher performing energy efficient windows a key driver. The total UK residential energy efficiency market including windows, central heating and building thermal insulation is forecast to increase by 10% between 2006 and 2009. This increase is driven by construction sector growth, the Energy White Paper, and future changes in building regulations.

The independent report Trade Sector Profiles, Domestic Glazing Sector, was commissioned by the Energy Saving Trust (EST) and the Energy Efficiency Partnership for Homes (EEPH), and carried out by Purple Market Research in June. The report is a synthesis of previous EST research, economic statistics and the most recent industry data. It’s the latest in a suite of studies including brown goods, white goods, insulation, heating and lighting, available for download at www.eeph.org.uk/reports/sectorprofiles. The study is used to inform sector participants and others, for example Defra, who have an interest in understanding each market’s structure and the business drivers.
