Over the five years to 2018, the Glass and Glazing Contractors industry has performed well, as a result of extensive economic improvements. Economic growth in the United States has stimulated increased demand from key markets for the industry, specifically residential and nonresidential construction. The Glass and Glazing Contractors industry installs glass curtain walls, windows, doors, room dividers and other products in residential, commercial and institutional buildings. Operators in the industry also tint and repair glass structures, as well as install window panes of all types. The industry's largest contractors specialize in installing glass curtain walls and exterior facades on office buildings and other commercial property, which usually constitute lucrative contracts. Smaller operators specialize in residential markets and emergency glass repairs. Construction activity increased demand for glass and glazing contractor services from key markets, as glass windows and structures are used as a key component in construction projects. Roughly two-thirds of industry revenue is derived from work on office space and commercial and institutional buildings, whether new or under renovation, with the remainder derived from work in the housing market. Steadily expanding residential and nonresidential construction markets helped to boost revenue. Overall, industry revenue is expected to increase at an annualized rate of 7.5% to reach $14.8 billion over the five years to 2018. Revenue is projected to increase 2.6% in 2018, as growth in the construction markets gradually slows down. Over the five years to 2023, the industry is projected to continue expanding, albeit at a slower pace. With the total value of construction projected to surpass its pre-recession levels, the rapid growth industry operators experienced during the prior period will be harder to maintain. Additionally, with the Federal Reserve widely expected to continue raising its short-term interest rate target over the five years to 2023, businesses are less likely to invest in large capital projects, such as new commercial buildings, which will slow industry expansion. Overall, IBISWorld expects revenue to grow at an annualized rate of 1.8% to $16.2 billion over the five years to 2023. - quoted from IBIS World.
