Curtain Walls Market: Introduction

  • Curtain walls are metal-framed thin walls that usually feature in-fills of thin stones, metal panels, or glass. Aluminum is the most common metal used to design curtain wall frames. These frames are attached to building structures and are not intended to carry roof or floor loads of the building. Development of aluminum-framed curtain walls date back to the early 1930’s and were largely manufactured after World War II when aluminum became accessible for industrial and residential manufacturing.  

Key Drivers of the Global Curtain Walls Market

  • Growing urbanization and significant investment in infrastructure development are key factors driving the demand for curtain walls. Ongoing advancement in building construction materials and technologies is anticipated to augment the application of curtain walls in modern residential and commercial buildings. Although curtain walls are not intended to provide structural stability, they provide protection from external elements such as weather changes, accidental fire, and UV light.
  • Modern architecture is focused on the utilization of new tools and designs to provide improved and sustainable aesthetics. Curtain walls are anticipated to provide sophisticated and unique appearance to modern buildings. Further, real estate developers are increasingly incorporating curtain walls in their commercial building projects to cater to corporate and hospitality sectors.

Opportunities in the Global Curtain Walls Market

  • Increasing demand for sustainable buildings and rising government initiatives to develop smart cities are identified as key market opportunities for curtain wall manufacturers. Key manufacturers are often engaged in extensive research and development to develop improved and bespoke solutions to cater to evolving needs of end-users.

COVID-19 Pandemic has Lowered Demand

Changes in the macroeconomic environment have caused supply chain disruption as well as demand fluctuations in the international market. Further, many construction projects have been postponed due to worker shortage and limited access to required materials and technologies. Therefore, delay in construction activities for residential and commercial projects is expected to affect the demand for curtain walls across key geographies.
