The Window & Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) has released the WDMA 2022 U.S. Market Study for Window & Patio Door, Entry Doors and Architectural Doors. The association says the study is designed to define the historical, current and forecasted size of the industry market. The report is based on direct industry input for product shipments in 2021 and combined with other primary and secondary research to benchmark the results. The Farnsworth Group conducted the surveys, analyzed the data and prepared the report.

The report delivers information on residential/light commercial window, patio door, residential entry door and interior architectural door market trends and product relationships; regional data, historic data from 2019 to 2020, and forecast data for 2022 through 2024. 

Of note, the WDMA report shows that:

  • Residential window and door shipments increased in 2021 despite supply chain issues and labor shortages;
  • Key drivers remain positive for the future; however, plateau in the second half of 2022.
  • For 2023 and 2024, concerns arise around consumer and builder confidence. As the Federal Reserve tackles inflation, interest rates could affect spending on new homes and large remodels.
  • The WDMA also forecasts the 2023 and 2024 window markets to expand, at a slower pace, and that most categories expect a slowdown, with units shipped expected to grow 1-2% in the coming years.

    The complete study is available for purchase online in the WDMA store in the Statistical Reports section for non-members. Individual market segments of the 2022 U.S. Market Study related specifically to residential windows, residential patio and entry doors and architectural doors are also available for purchase separately.
