Report Overview

The global facade market size was valued at USD 205.89 billion in 2018. It is poised to register a CAGR of 7.6% from 2019 to 2025. The rise in construction-related activities has been an important factor in driving the market. Furthermore, technological innovations are leading to the development of energy-saving facade materials. These advanced products absorb solar energy and find widespread adoption in several commercial and residential buildings as a secondary source of electricity generation.

North America facade market

The market is expected to grow at a considerable rate over the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to rising customer spending power, primarily in China, Japan, India, Brazil, and GCC countries, along with the need to provide a secure work environment to employees. Furthermore, the use of metal composite materials offers a durable, harmonious, and modern appearance to the building. Increasing usage of such composite materials to build facades is projected to provide an upthrust to the market over the coming years.

Modernization and urbanization are playing a vital role in the growth of the market. Several factors, including waterproofing, fabrication, durability, and resistance to extreme climate, come to play during the construction of facades. Changing perceptions of consumers and increasing focus on the exterior appearance of a building are anticipated to boost the growth of the market.

Rising disposable income is leading to increased investments in renovations, which in turn is estimated to augment the market. Growing investments for the advancement in the residential and commercial construction industry in developed countries such as the U.S. can stoke the growth of the market.

Product Insights

Ventilated facades are likely to be the most prominent product type during the forecast period. Among the ventilated type, curtain walls are poised to be the fastest-growing sub-segment, owing to their increasing penetration in commercial buildings. They mainly comprise glass materials that can transmit heat to provide a warm atmosphere in regions with low temperatures. As a result, they are also projected to gain high demand in residential applications soon, primarily in the U.S., the U.K., and other colder parts of Europe.

The market, at present, is dominated by classic designs, which are anticipated to be replaced by modern, eco-friendly designs over the coming years. Ease of raw material availability and strong demand in the end-use sector, including the commercial and industrial sectors, owing to recovery of the global economy, is estimated to unfold opportunities for industry players over the forecast period.

Major innovations in composite material development are leading to overcoming several limitations of excess heat and soundproofing. Several basic materials used in the development of the product include aluminum, plastic & fiber, glass, ceramic, and steel. Aluminum and glass-based composite materials are widely used to build facades, owing to their low weight and high transparency respectively.

Aluminum and glass are highly preferred due to their durable and elastic properties. This allows designers to provide proper shape and size to facades. Investments in R & D have also led to the development of eco-friendly or sustainable bio-climatic “second-skin facades” to make use of the environment for building lighting, heating, and cooling.

End-Use Insights

Facades are extensively used in commercial and residential buildings to protect the interior and provide a visually appealing outer architecture. The product is extensively used in commercial buildings due to the availability of high construction budget among corporates.

Rise in the number of commercial buildings, such as retail stores, hotels, medical centers, warehouses, and garages, in India, China, Brazil, and the Middle Eastern countries are expected to spur the growth of the global facades market over the forecast period.

U.S. facade market

Implementation of the product in residential buildings is also likely to increase over the next few years owing to rising customer awareness regarding energy saving, primarily in the U.S., the U.K., Germany, and Japan

Regional Insights

The Asia Pacific dominated the market with over 37.0% share in terms of revenue in 2018. Increasing the construction of new commercial and industrial buildings in countries, including China, India, and Southeast Asia, is contributing to the growth of the region. Furthermore, the development of innovative, eco-friendly materials is also poised to impel customers, particularly in the U.S. and the U.K., to redevelop/renovate buildings.

North America and Europe, collectively, commanded more than 45.0% of the total market in 2018, owing to a growing affinity towards advanced facade materials. These regions are highly adaptive to new technologies. As a result, penetration of the product in the commercial and residential sectors is projected to be high, thereby positively influencing the market growth.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

The major players operating in the market include Enclos Corp.; Permasteelisa North America; Walters & Wolf; Harmon Inc.; and SEPA. The industry has witnessed the entry of several Chinese manufacturers, including Jinjiu Sci-Tech New Material Co., Ltd. and Xiamen China-Nice Manufacturing and Trading Co., Ltd., which has drastically increased competition and may impact well-established players.
