The Commercial Glazing Market in Great Britain 2017

The last four years have seen the commercial glazing market grow by 16% in volume terms and by 41% in installed value terms. It has been driven  by the resurgence in the commercial offices sector, and to a lesser extent education, delivering a major pull-through of core product in windows, curtain walling and roof glazing.

Since our last report we have had the Brexit referendum with an unexpected result impacting on market confidence. This will have a significant effect on important sectors within the commercial glazing sector for the coming two years, with others reporting continuing growth.
