AAMA and WDMA release 2012/2013


industry review and forecast The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) and the Window & Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) have jointly released the AAMA/WDMA 2012/2013 U.S. Industry Statistical Review and Forecast. This report delivers timely information on win-

dow, door and skylight market trends and product relationships. Historic data for 2006 through 2012 and forecast data for 2013 through 2015 also are included in the report. Forecasts are based on pro- jections of construction activity as of March 2013. In 2012, new residential construction activ-


ity closed with a 26.5 percent improvement compared to 2011, which is slightly better than what was forecasted last December. This im- provement is attributed to strong gains in both single family and multifamily segments. The study forecasts similar improvement for 2013, with multifamily and single family starts each expected to experience a 28 percent growth. Going forward, the overall new housing market is expected to continue a similar level of growth for at least the next two years. The demand for prime windows rebounded


somewhat in 2012 and increased overall by 6 percent, driven by a very strong demand for new housing. The outlook for residential window demand continues to be optimistic, with expec- tations for a 15 percent increase in 2013. The expected increase is driven largely by expecta- tions for stronger new construction activity and a 9 percent increase for renovation. Nonresidential construction activity experienced


slow growth, though the net effect was negligible in categories favorable to architectural door volumes (hospitality, education, health care, offi ce). Specifi - cally for 2012, total volume remained steady at 2.3 million units for nonresidential entry doors and 6.3 million units for architectural interior doors, refl ecting a fl at market in comparison with 2011. Residential skylights closed the year with


a growth rate of nearly 2 percent over the 2011 volume, lower than what was forecasted in De- cember 2012. New construction skylight activity was up 10 percent in 2012, which is lower than anticipated, while remodeling and replacement skylight activity was fl at versus 2011 totals. In addition to the U.S. Industry Statistical
