Market Report Description

The Global Energy-Efficient Window Market size is expected to reach $18.7 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 6.2% CAGR during the forecast period.

Energy-efficient windows assist to decrease the consumption of artificial cooling and heating in a building. Glass, or glazing, the frame, and associated hardware are the three main components of these windows. These components provide great insulation from heat loss and gain from the outside environment, minimizing the building's energy usage. The energy-efficient windows are measured by two basic elements. These include the solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC), which measures how much solar heat enters the window, and the U-factor, which measures the window's insulating capacity.

Every energy efficient window product is recognized by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) of the United States based on SHGC and U-factor, certifying it for the Energy Star Rating. Moreover, energy efficient windows come in double and triple glazing variants, as well as low emissivity (Low-E) coatings and argon and krypton gas filling between the panels.

The adoption of the energy-efficient window, which decreases energy and air conditioning costs, is a major driver of the energy-efficient market industry's growth. Installing energy-efficient windows might help customers save up to 15% on overall annual air conditioning costs. Moreover, increased demand for power, owing to population growth and rising dependency on electrical items, artificial air conditioning, as well as other energy-intensive devices, would increase the need for energy-efficient devices. By closing off the air outlet from within the room, energy-efficient windows help to reduce electricity consumption waste.

As a result, it is easier to maintain the room's temperature and reduce the use of artificial air central heating, which fuels the development of the efficient energy windows business. Furthermore, governments have implemented rules to reduce home carbon footprints as a result of greater awareness about environmental preservation as a result of global recognition of climate change. To put such measures in place, governments provide various subsidies for the replacement of aging furnaces and windows. Subsidies like these boost the economy for energy-efficient windows as replacements for older windows.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic had various impacts on the glass market as per the glass subsector. Construction and renovation work came to a halt as a result of the restrictions, which had a direct impact on the market for energy-efficient windows. Many households' income was also affected by the lockdown, limiting purchasing power. The effect of COVID-19 on the construction sector was negative. The industry almost came to a standstill around the world due to restrictions on non-essential activities. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, different construction building projects, such as new and current projects, contract value, and worksite productivity, are expected to decline by 24% in 2020 compared to 2019.

Market driving Factors:

Growing use of energy-efficient windows in the non-residential sector

Commercial buildings, such as workplaces, hospitals, hotels, airports, and educational institutions, are examples of non-residential structures that use energy-efficient windows. Major commercial buildings are constructed with energy conservation in mind. These structures are also designed to break even over time, so choosing energy-efficient windows appears to be a good choice. In the commercial construction sector, with the developing economies tend to increase the demand for green buildings. Demand for such structures has recently increased in North American and European countries. The development of educational facilities and hospitals is expanding in developing nations, resulting in an increase in the demand for energy-efficient windows in the non-residential end-use sector.

Energy-efficient windows at a low cost

As compared to a less efficient choice, an efficient product is expense when the overall energy savings from prevented energy expenses during the product's life, discounted to present value, balance the additional up-front cost. When calculating required efficiency levels, ENERGY STAR reflects both upfront expenses as well as lifetime energy savings. ENERGY STAR-qualified items and products that fulfill FEMP-designated efficiency requirements can be assumed to be life cycle cost-effective by federal buyers. Buyers that select products which exceed federal efficiency criteria may save more money in high-use scenarios or when energy prices are higher than the national average. In certain low-use applications or locations with very low electricity or natural gas rates, products achieving ENERGY STAR or FEMP-designated performance criteria may not be full-cycle cost-effective.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

Lack of awareness among consumers

Due to the strong development in the construction sector, the market for energy-efficient windows has a promising future. People in some undeveloped or underdeveloped countries in South America, Africa, and Asia are less conscious of the advantages of these window systems. There is a lack of knowledge about building energy efficiency. This deters citizens in these countries from purchasing insulating products. When designing business and residential infrastructure in these countries, many engineers and architects disregard the building's energy efficiency. Awareness of Financial saving, can be achieved by constructing low-energy homes with energy-efficient window materials.

Energy-Efficient Window Market Share and Industry Analysis Report 2020

Application Outlook

Based on Application, the market is segmented into Renovation & reconstruction and new construction. The new construction segment procured a substantial revenue share in the energy efficient window market in 2020. It is due to the factors like rising population across the world, increase in new construction projects, rapid pace of urbanization and others.

Component Outlook

Based on Component, the market is segmented into Glass, Frames, and Hardware. The glass segment acquired the highest revenue share in the in the Energy-Efficient Window Market in 2020. The choice of glazing is by far the most crucial decision in most windows in terms of energy efficiency. Users might also want to choose different types of skylights for various windows across the entire home depending on multiple window design parameters such as climate, window orientation, building design, and many more.

End User Outlook

Based on End-use, the market is segmented into Non-residential, and Residential. The Residential segment registered a significant revenue share in the Energy-Efficient Window Market in 2020. Apartment, single-family separated & attached homes, and mobile homes are examples of residential structures. An increase in household wealth as well as other factors has fueled demand for bigger houses and more energy services in recent decades, growing energy usage per household. Moreover, increased concentration of devices and appliances, such as computer and entertainment systems, has increased demand for electricity.

Glazing Type Outlook

Based on Glazing Type, the market is segmented into Double Glazed, Triple Glazed, and Others. The double-glazed segment witnessed the maximum revenue share in the Energy-Efficient Window Market in 2020. With the increased demand for the residences and non-residential sectors, a double segment is projected to expand rapidly during the forecast period. These windows are used in both remodelling and new construction. Double-glazed windows substantially minimize heat loss and increase the rate of energy conservation which boost the double-glazed in the energy efficient window market.
