Insight Data has published its latest industry report, which gives an extensive overview of the UK window, door and conservatory industry, including outlining the top performing companies.

Research on over 15,000 companies has ensured the report could be produced and features analysis, trends and opinion on the current state of the industry.

Information on fabricators, installers, trade counters and the growth of ‘builder installers’, as well as developments in products and materials, also make an appearance.

Notable points from the report include increased competition as the number of window companies rises, fewer PVC-U fabricators with aluminium remaining strong and single storey extensions and tiled roof conservatories are creating new opportunities.

Other highlights to take out are trade counters expanding rapidly, potentially disrupting the market and the significant rise in specialist/premium products, such as vertical sliders.

Insight Data’s managing director, Andrew Scott, said: “The industry is currently facing some challenges with more companies now reporting a slowdown in business, some by as much as 15%.

“However, there are still plenty of opportunities and a number of companies are bucking the trend. The increase in mergers and acquisitions over the last year also points to a realignment of the industry. Market intelligence is the key to informed, strategic decisions.”
