This bi-annual report delivers timely information on residential and non-residential market trends and product relationships for windows, doors, skylights, curtain walls and storefronts.

In 2015, the market declined 5 percent overall, and all segments experienced a slight decline. Manufacturing/warehouses declined 7 percent, stores/mercantile building declined 4 percent, while office buildings/hotels/institutional declined 5 percent. Going forward non-residential contract awards are expected to increase in 2015 throughout 2018.
