“Energy-efficient windows market projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.6%”
The energy-efficient windows market size is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.6% during the forecast period of 2016–2026 and reach USD 25.31 billion by 2026. The energy-efficient windows market is gaining momentum in the modern construction industry due to the factors such as growth in concerns with regard to increasing level of carbon footprint in the environment as a result of high energy consumption, increase in trend of sustainable construction techniques such as zero energy building and energy-efficient buildings, and stringent government regulations. However, lack of awareness regarding the benefits of energy-efficient windows and their high initial investments & installation cost act as retraining factors for the energy-efficient windows market.

“The double glazing segment accounted for the largest market share in the energy-efficient windows market in 2015”
The double glazing segment dominated the energy-efficient windows market in 2015 and is projected to retain the leading position through 2026. Double paned windows are relatively cheaper than the other type of double and triple glazed alternatives and provide medium thermal benefits. This type of glazing is popular across all regions, mainly in the emerging economies of Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and in the southwestern Europe. The application of double glazed windows can be widely seen in the non-residential buildings, which nowadays are growingly using fixed windows for the exterior part of the building structure.

“The replacement & renovation segment, by application, accounted for a considerably larger market share in the energy-efficient windows market”
The energy-efficient windows find applications in replacement & renovation and new construction segments. The replacement & renovation application led the demand for energy-efficient windows in 2015 and is projected to grow at a higher CAGR from 2016 to 2026. This growth can be attributed to the existing base of installed windows, which need replacement over the years. Also, growth in concerns with regard to energy consumption and increase in trend of sustainable construction are anticipated to propel the homeowners and building contractors to switch to energy-efficient windows for replacement purpose, majorly in developed markets.

“The Asia-Pacific region expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period”
In 2015, the U.S. was the largest country-level market for energy-efficient windows and is projected to be the fastest-growing in the North American region from 2016 to 2026, owing to the increase in trend of zero energy buildings and sustainable construction and implementation of energy related regulations.

The Asia-Pacific region is projected to register the highest CAGR globally, between 2016 and 2021. China was largest market for energy-efficient windows in the Asia-Pacific region, in 2015. The Chinese market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of construction activities in the region as well as population in China, Indonesia, and India are driving the growth of the Asia-Pacific energy-efficient windows market.
