The windows and doors market will grow in 2021 by 10.6% (previous forecasts indicated +8.6%) the recovery will continue in 2022 with +7.9%. In the residential segment, the demand for windows and doors will grow by 14% in 2021 and 9.5% in 2022, these are, again, the highest values recorded in the last 20 years.

Tax incentives for the replacement of windows and doors (combination of Bonus Casa, Superbonus 110% and Ecobonus) will generate in 2021 a demand for windows and doors of more than 2 billion euros, a figure not recorded since 2013.
