Sept. 12, 2012 — The American Architectural Manufacturers Association and the Window and Door Manufacturers Association have jointly released
an August 2012 update to the "2011/2012 U.S. Industry Statistical Review
and Forecast." This report delivers timely information on window, door and
skylight market trends and product relationships in the American market. Historic data for 2006
through 2011 and forecast data for 2012 through 2015 are also included in the
report. Forecasts are based on projections of construction activity as of
August 2012.
 
According to the updated study's data, multi-family and single family starts
are expected to experience a slightly better increase than what was initially
thought, up to 19 per cent over 2011, with additional increases in 2013 and
2014. Residential improvement expenditures are expected to see a similar shift.
 
The study goes on to detail the growth rate of skylights, as well as figures
for residential interior door material types. Amongst the other conclusions is
that non-residential construction declined slightly in 2011, and will remain slow
through this year.
