Door to door: Revenue will rise, but increasing import competition will challenge profitability

Industry performance is largely determined by demand from the construction market because such products are predominantly used in construction and repair work. However, over the past five years, competitively priced imports from Asia and the United States have captured a greater share of the domestic market and diminished domestic demand for industry products. Moreover, advanced plastic properties and capabilities have bolstered the popularity of substitute goods such as plastic doors and windows in place of their metal counterparts. As a result, revenue is expected to increase over the five years to 2018. While profitability has improved, increasing competition from low-cost imports and plastic substitutes is expected to limit further profit expansion over the five years to more.
